WHY ARE TEENS THE WAY THEY ARE?
This student delved into the many things it means to be a teenager.  The wonderful site she created speaks not only to teens, but also to parents, teachers, and those in their pre-teen years about physical and emotional changes, peer pressure and self-esteem issues, and how to “survive” the rollercoaster ride experienced by many in their teenage years.

HOW MUCH CAN WE LEARN ABOUT A PAST CULTURE FROM ARTIFACTS?

At the end of the project the two schools came together and shared their findings.
