This is our first year to compete in the ThinkQuest competition. At the beginning of our school year, we discussed topics which we would like to design a website for. After brainstorming lots of ideas, we decided to make our website about bears and commemorate the teddy bear's 100th birthday! We decided this because the bear hunt that started it all happened in our home state of Mississippi!
First, we categorized our ideas and researched each topic. Then we began learning how to put our information onto webpages. After months of challenging work, we completed the website. It was lots of fun!!! Even though at times it was frustrating , we are very proud of ourselves for finishing.
