Last week, five classes from Summerset High School visited Colonial Williamsburg to experience the living history of pre-Revolutionary War America. On Tuesday, the groups and their teachers toured the five major sites in the city, including the Peyton Randolph House, where they interacted with in-character performers portraying Randolph family members in 1774. At 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 in the morning and 1:00 and 2:00 in the afternoon, each class was at a different one of the five major attractions, with no two at the same site at the same time. Given the tour guide below, can you find which class (by teacher's name) was at which attraction at each time?

  1. In the morning during consecutive time slots, Mrs. Geddy's and Mrs. Rockefeller's classes visited the same two major attractions.
  2. Twice during the morning touring, Mr. Shields' group followed Mr. Bassett's class in seeing one of the major sites.
  3. Mrs. Geddy's class enjoyed the regal Governor's Palace, and the maze in its garden, in the afternoon.
  4. Mrs. Rockefeller's students were next to visit the Raleigh Tavern after Mr. Shields' class was there.
  5. Mr. Bassett's group toured Wetherburn Tavern one hour after Mrs. Geddy's class enjoyed the 18th century hostelry.
  6. During the morning, Mrs. Wythe's class was followed an hour later by Mrs. Rockefeller's students at the Governor's Palace.
  7. Mr. Shields' class heard about Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and other members of the House of Burgesses during their afternoon tour of the Capitol.
