Emma, Skylar, Julia and Carmen created uber-cool glo jars. I can think of many practical, fun applications for this idea!
Wade created an awesome book review website on Weebly.com. Here, you can find books he's read with a full description/review of each book. He updates it, regularly. To find the site, click here.
Brooke and Sammi presented to the class on their Passion Time project--creating Pokemon cards!
Olivia and Emma L. chose to explore how to make a music video using the app "Video Star". Take a moment to watch their presentation and movie. Good job, girls!
