How We Worked
We worked together to build this site by meeting together. We started this project when we were in third grade. We met almost every week. We usually met at one of our houses. We worked on most of the games in school. We researched over the summer by visiting farms and asking the farmers many questions about organic farming. We visited farms, went to farm camp, grew a garden and interviewed farmers.
The hardest part about this project was probably researching. The second hardest part was organizing the information. We overcame these challenges by working together and thinking as one mind!
This website talks about farms in Germany, Hawaii and the mainland United States. Our topic affects the world because everyone needs food. Our team has connections to Bangladesh, Germany, Hawaii, and the mainland United States.

For the ThinkQuest project I researched, made some games, and helped make the website. I really enjoyed making the site, but did not really like inserting pictures. Overall I really liked the project.

While working on this website I enjoyed making videos and going to farm camp. I also enjoyed taking pictures of different farms and learning about them. Sometimes I enjoyed building the web site. I learned that growing a garden organically can be hard work that doesn’t always pay off, but still I enjoyed learning this.

I liked how we worked through all the challenges in ThinkQuest. I very much enjoyed learning about organic farming because we got to visit many different interesting farms. I learned that organic farming is better for you and that organic farms are usually smaller than conventional farms.
I visited the Worm Farm and Ma'o Farms, both in Hawaii. I did research and helped build the website. I enjoyed making the website because it was easier than researching.
