JN Mystery Class :: Weeks Five & Six

We have continued working on our Journey North Mystery Class charts. I am only behind in posting our updates!

Update for February 27 sunrise & sunset data

Celeste helps too!

Update for March 5 sunset & sunrise data

Tomorrow we received Longitude Clues as well as the sunrise and sunset data! Here is a link to a helpful teacher's practice packet.
Another helpful link is for the slideshow: A Clue About Longitude Clues.
We like to use the form below to calculate our longitude clues. I am not sure where I first found this form. I wish I could give credit to whoever created this!
