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

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
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
