Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Our Great Fires home page was used as a model of technology integration into the curriculum of the 4th grade. Beginning with the theme of the Peshtigo Fire (their study of Wisconsin), our students explored, researched and created an internet site that expanded to the Chicago Fire when they discovered, through research, that both occurred on the same date. Students acknowledged and utilized technology in every aspect of this project. They saw the connectedness between academic study and Internet use.
