Our ThinkQuest Experience
We are 6 kids (5 girls and 1 boy), in 4th, 5th and 6th grades, who live
in the Jackson Mississippi area. All of the girls are in gifted classes
at their schools. We got into ThinkQuest through Mrs. Lynn Roth, our
teacher, mother and friend's mother, who found the contest while surfing
on the internet, and she asked us if we would be interested in doing it.
Five of us had some computer experience, or computers at our home. But
neither of the two schools we go to have internet hook-up at school.
Rachel and Tyler decided on our topic ~ The Natchez Trace ~ since we
all live within 10 miles of the Trace, and we have all been on plenty of
trips (both school field trips and personal trips ~ see photos at the
bottom of this page) along the Trace. We
brainstormed to decide what students our age (10 to 12) would be
interested in knowing about the Trace, then we divided up the work, and
started researching it.
We had to do all our computer work at home or at the library. The
hardest part was getting the tools like Search Engine, Message Board, and
Mailto to work. We kept reading how to do it, but it was
hard! (We hope they are still working when you read this!) We produced
our document with Dana Shareware, Microsoft FrontPage, and Paint Shop
Now let us tell you a little about ourselves.
