Secret Message…. March 20, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsdaughertysclass @ 6:57 am

This week we are going to try and crack the code that will free Lina and Doon from the City of Ember.  I would like you to visit this website and try your hand at cracking the code!  It isn’t really a code it is just a message full of holes.  Try to fill in the holes as much as you can and post what you figure out.  A good hint would be to copy the message over into Microsoft Word and see what you can figure out and then copy the message back to your post.  Additionally, I would like you to make a prediction about where you think they are (if you have already read the book, don’t give away the story!) and one question you have about the story right now.  Be sure to MEANINGFULLY comment on a friends post (not – good post).

      Good question, John. I’m still not sure where they are because the book has not revealed it yet, but I think they’re underground too. I can’t wait to finish it either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that someone will deliver Doon’s note to his dad and he will inform the others and they will all meet in the other land.
    My question would be, is the other land that they are going to the same as Ember or is it bright by the sun?

    5 grab a boat and loop the boat and take the ride
    6 head down a street up a tunnel
