Brogan: What I have learned from this Global virtual classroom project is that when you work in a group, you have to cooperate with the others . I also learned that when global warming started, we should have stop it right away . The last thing is that if the website needs a little bit more work you should offer and help out so that the website will be that much better.

Kendra : What I learned about doing this website is to colaborate with your group and with other people. Another thing that I learned is global warming is worse then what I thought it was, so i think if we have more colaboratetion with everybody we work with I bet this website would turn out better then what we have!So lets work together then what we have so far!

Drew : What i have learned about doing the website is that colaborate can help globla wamming .If we work all to gather we might make the world a greater place . I think we are doing really good on our website ! keep the good work up !

Jessica : Many thousands of new jobs would be created when we finally switch to alternate energy sources and look at how much benefit it would be to our planet. I thought this would be an easy project and really fun working with computers and meeting some new friends. Well meeting new friends was really great, but the work was really hard. We want to continue sending and receiving email from our partners.

Nathan : I believe that we all have learned something about global warming.This shows that we all need to work together,on making the world a better place for generations to come.By discovering alternative energy sources,we are reversing man's imprint on the earth.I have enjoyed researching,and sharing my ideas, with our American neighbours

Matthew: Hi, we are students in Mrs. Letourneau's third grade class at Martel School. Our school is located in Lewiston, Maine. Lewiston is the second largest city in the state with a population of 40, 000 people. It is located in Androscoggin Valley in Central Maine within the Appalachian Mountain Range.

Rachel: Canada borders us to the north and northwest while the Atlantic Ocean makes up our east border. The only state to border Maine is New Hampshire to southwest.

Melissa: The state of Maine is the furthest northeastern state in our country. Did you know that every day in the USA begins in Maine?

Gage: Maine is famous for its seafood, yummy lobster, sweet maple syrup, and for producing the most brown eggs in the country.

Jericho: Lewiston is 510 miles from Port Dover, Ontario, Canada and 901 miles from Oak Park, Illinois, USA as the crow flies.

Nicholas: Our thoughts about participating in a virtual classroom: It was stupendous! Fun to have e-mails, Alec actually met a fourth grade student from Doverwood during the hockey tournament during winter break! It was awesome that he knew Mr. Anger.

Serenity: Best of all was sharing the work on our energy project. As our teacher says, be frugal, waste not want not…we want to be pebbles in a pond of alternative energy.
