It’s time to¬†guess the mystery image. We had the most ever student responses to our original guess-the-image post, so I’m bringing it back. Hope to see even more of you putting your guesses in our Comments section this time. Remember, please: just use your first name to identify yourself and make sure your comment is one that is relevant and appropriate for all our readers.

You have a few days to noodle around, talk to friends and family, and try to figure out what this image is. I’ll be putting hints on the blog each day until this Friday, when I’ll reveal the answer and tell you where to find the cool resource in Discovery Education, so you can watch the whole thing, if you want. Good luck!
