I have chosen your students' site:
Learning About Leonardo /13681/data/davin2.shtml as the Sassafrass Grove Site Of The Month! You can check it out at: http://www.angelfire.com/mo/sasschool/index.html
For DECEMBER 1999, we have chosen a site which, although not specifically a homeschooling site, shares some very interesting insight into a question that children of all ages have asked for years: "Why is the Mona Lisa smiling?" An interesting set of pages put together as a collaborative ThinkQuest project of John F. Kennedy High School students in the Bronx New York and their peers in Borlange, Sweden, to learn about Leonardo DaVinci - (For instance; did you know that he also wrote music?) This site was created for students, teachers and populations with special needs. We are sure you will enjoy your visit!"
