I am very excited! Last year, I discovered too late a great online class that many other homeschooling families were taking advantage of, Journey North Mystery Class. I was evident in their blog posts that everyone who participated thoroughly enjoyed the class and learned a lot about geography along the way.
For those not familiar with it, it is essentially a hunt to find 10 “mystery” classes which are “hidden” around the globe. You will first use sunrise/sunset data to help determine the latitude of each class. In late March, you will receive a special set of “longitude clues” to help you determine the longitude of each class. Then, you will start receiving weekly clues about each mystery class. These might include special holidays they celebrate, landmarks, history, etc. At this point, you will have narrowed down the classes to a latitude & longitude and are using the clues to help you locate the precise city.
