Older Children Section

This is new..   I realize many of the things I share only work well for the younger students.   Much of it can be adapted for older children but this section will be more indepth studies for your older children.   Some will be studies that they can read, then have them writing an article up discussin the study, what they liked, what they learned, if there was anything they didn’t agree with, etc..
