             Last week I called my granddad, but he was at work. Then I called my friend, but he was still in bed asleep. How can I know when to call them when they will be able to talk to me? wpeD.jpg (7201 bytes)

Use the Time Zone Chart to help you. Click on the correct answer.

It is 8:00 in the Pacific zone, so it is 9:00 in the   zone.

It is 2:00 in the Eastern zone, so it is 12:00 in the zone.

It is 6:00 in the Central zone, so it is 4:00 in the zone.

It is 1:00 in the Mountain zone, so it is 3:00 in the zone.
