My name is Madeline. I am in the 6th grade at Public School 56. You must
be wondering why it looks like I have green teeth. Well, there is
a simple answer, BRACES! I change the color every month, so expect me with
blue teeth next month. Last year I did a ThinkQuest Junior website
called "Yo, It's Time For Braces". Check it out at:
year when I started Think Quest Junior in September, I had been interested
in the subject of counterfeits and art rights because once I was a victim
of art pirates myself. If you want to know more, go to my
essay on counterfeiting. I know how it feels to be ripped off!
I know a lot of kids who have felt the same way. Counterfeiters target
kids for only one reason. We are gullible. We see something we like and
we empty our wallets. I hope you write to our guest book about your own
experiences with art thieves and pirates...........
my name is Kimberly, but my friends call me Kim. I am a 5th grader
at Public School 56. Like Madeline, I have braces too. I just
got back from Space Camp near Cape Canaveral in Florida in February. If
you like to hang upside down I suggest you go too! I'm on a softball and
basketball team. They're called CYO Teams. I like reading science
fiction and mysteries. I thought it was cool to make a website. So here

I especially enjoy sports, such as baseball, basketball, kickball, dodge
ball and hockey. I love to write and I love to draw. I love
to play computer games like Starcraft, Tomb Raiders, Snood and much more.
I am also a Nintendo and gameboy freak and I just love the NY Mets and
their star catcher, Mike Piazza. I collect baseball cards, Pokemon
cards, beanie babies, and stamps. I love my life.
