Mystery Class Update


We identified all ten Mystery Classes and were one of the winners of the contest!

At our school we’ve been talking about feeling proud about something you’ve accomplished. We definitely feel proud that we found all the Mystery Classes! We wrote in this blog post about how we worked to find them. It took a lot of effort and perseverance to figure out all the clues. In fact, we struggled over Mystery Class 8 until the last day of the contest, when a small group finally figured out it was in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

This was such a fun project! We enjoyed learning about the changing seasons and the cultures of so many interesting places.

Here is the actual list of classes, courtesy of Journey North. Have you heard of all these cities?


  1. Dear Mrs. Hamman’s Class,

    Wow! I am really impressed you persevered through all of those clues AND came out a winner! Congratulations! My class worked on them as well, so I know how tough the clues really were. I don’t think I had ever heard of Mapou. Had any of you?

    Congratulations again on a job well done!

    Mrs. Moore

  2. Dear Mrs.Hammen’s class,

    That is really cool that you guys were one of the winners we did not finish because we were doing other things like our worms.

    Your friend,

  3. Dear Mrs. Hamman’s Class,

    That is a fabulous accomplishment! If another class wanted to enter the Mystery Class next year, what advice and tips would you give them?

    Kind regards,
    Mrs. Watanabe

  4. Dear Mrs. Hamman’s Class,
    What an outstanding group of individuals you are! It makes me proud to think of each of you persevering through a challenge such as this. What do you think helped you to solve all of the cities?

    Mrs. Farris
