Welcome to Middle School's

6th Grade

World National Parks Project

Students in Mrs. DeJong's 6th grade Computer Applications classes are participating in a world national parks wiki project. Students will choose a world national park, research their park, and then create their own wiki page within this wiki. While this wiki will in no way represent every world national park, the students will get a nice start on adding a variety of parks to this site. To view each students' handiwork, click on a park name in the menu to the left. Enjoy!

For more information on the logistics of this project, please click here. This rendition of the project involves collaboration with a group of students almost 500 miles away! Through the beauty of technology, students are able to work with students in another part of the country and are able to create a "masterpiece" together. (To see the original project created by Karen Bosch and including ISTE lesson standards, go to Apple Learning Interchange.)
