Mystery Class 2012 Week #4 - Eva Varga

February 24, 20121
This week the clues we were given generated a discussion about time zones.  Buddy’s birthday is in just two days so he was particularly intrigued to learn that a baby born at the exact same time as he would have been born on a different date if he were born in Norway (for example).  

This year’s 10 Mystery Classes are located in eight different time zones.When daylight saving time occurs, the 10 Mystery Classes will be located in eight different time zones.  A photo captures a single moment in time. New York City’s famous Tourneau clocks show the local time—at a given moment—in different time zones around the world.

Using the clues and data from Journey North, we were able to divide the Mystery Classes into northern and southern hemispheres.  This week, however, the munchkins realized they had made a mistake … #7 was indeed in the northern hemisphere but was near the equator, not near the North Pole as they had originally guessed.

Recap of our estimations thus far:

north pole … #5, #10, #1, #9, #3, home, #7 … equator … #8, #2, #4, #6 … south pole
