Our team has five members from the USA plus one team member from
Bulgaria. We worked as a team; collaborating on every
detail. Each of us wrote a little about ourselves for this
page. The best thing of all was that we changed our names.
We were able to pick out any names we wanted, and these are
I enjoy soccer, softball, and
basketball. I also enjoy swimming and playing with my friends.
I like reading, sleeping, and working on the computer. I

When I get older, I would like to be a photographer or a
kindergarten teacher. I am eleven years old and I have an older
sister. I have one dog named Emma, and two cats named Sarah and
Bruce. I am the tallest girl in our sixth grade class and I
have more than 12 relatives.
I enjoyed our topic because I remember getting stuck with
writing rock and mineral reports and not understanding what I
read or what mining really is. Our club is called Club Web and
we created this site for the ThinkQuest competition and for our
fourth and fifth grade students who wonít have to struggle like
Unlike many other kids, I
enjoy school and learning. My two favorite subjects are math

I am 12 years old and one of three kids. I have one younger
sister and one younger brother. I have one female chocolate lab
puppy named Coco. I like to play softball, but I canít stand
soccer! I also enjoy eating, sleeping, spending time with my
family, and hanging out with my friends.
I love our topic and think it was a very good
choice. I think that mining rocks and minerals is a very common
topic for reports. Our site will answer the need for a site
geared to school age children who need to understand the
informationónot just copy meaningless facts.
I am eleven years old
and have two sisters and one brother. My family has four petsóa
dog, a bird, some fish, and a chinchilla.
I like Lord of the Rings and video games. I

I like our topic a lot because it is very interesting.
I am having a great time working on this and hope you enjoy our
Hi, my name is
Shaun. I am a
normal child who likes stuff like playing video games, doing
sports, and getting good grades. There is stuff I donít like,
though. I donít like to study and not even understand what I am
reading. Thatís one reason why doing this website was a good
thing. Now YOU wonít be reading things you donít understand.
Iíve always wanted to be an artist when I grow up. People
always say that I draw good, so I thought Iíd get a head start
by drawing for this website.
I own one dog and one cat and live with my uncle, grandma,
mom, dad, and sister.
Hi, my name is Kris. I'm from Bulgaria. I'm 10 years old.
I live with my mum, my dad, and my baby brother who is 9 months
old. I like school [though not all the time] and my
favorite subjects are art, sports, and math. I participate
in math competitions and sometimes I win. The sports I
like are acrobatics and basketball even though I am not so tall.
I don't like soccer very much. When I grow up I want to
draw cartoons or be an actor.
I am crazy about computer games. I enjoy reading
Harry Potter. I adore eating chocolate. On Sunday
evening I love having Chinese food. I like the topic of
mining because I'm interested in searching for tiny multicolored
pebbles. I think our website will help curious kids learn
more about rocks and to do better reports at school.
Hello, my name is Marlin. I like school,
sports, and hunting. When I grow up, I would like to join
the Marines. I like baseball and soccer, but I despise
My favorite subjects are math and gym. I also like
history. I like to read historical and fantasy books.
I'm happy to be a part of the Mining Team because the team is
fun. I also am learning many things and am very interested
in mining. Our topic will help younger kids find
information easier because we are making it understandable.
I wish someone had done that for us when we were doing reports!
