This project was a team effort! Whenever one of us located information for someone elseís country or continent we let them see what it was or told them how to find it themselves. We helped one another when we were having trouble. Also, when one of us was getting frustrated with something, we would joke around to make them feel better. We complimented each other on a job well done too. We also used our individual knowledge about each continent to make our webpage and animations the best we could. As you can see, we had a blast working together on this project!
Elizabeth I love the Americas, so that is why I chose to research them. The culture of America is filled with technology and trading, too. I thought that there would be a lot of information on the Americas and that would be very helpful.
Gabrielle I studied the country Japan. I chose this country because one of my best friends moved there two summers ago. After she moved there I developed an interest in this country. Japanís customs and architecture are amazing. Also, all of the rice planting and harvesting are amazing concepts! When I found out that we were doing this project I automatically thought of studying Japan. I hope that once we finish it, my friend will actually get to see it! I chose the continent Asia, not only because that is the continent Japan is located on, but because it has great and interesting history. Chinese, Indian, and Japanese history dates back thousands of years.
Scott Hello, Iím Scott! I chose Africa as my continent because I love African animals and I wanted to see if they love their animals enough to put them on their money. I learned a lot about the history of African currency. I hope you liked our website.
Vincent I chose Europe because I have a lot of historical background in it. I started to be interested in it when I discovered that my grandparents were born there. After I started listening to my grandparents' stories, I began to research the continent. I also picked Europe to research because it has a lot of history. The continent dates back a long time.
Willow I chose Australia as my continent because I already knew a lot about it and I think it is very interesting. It is interesting because it is very original and different.
