Kidlink Landmark 2014 Games - The Project starts again in February. Last year we had so many participants that we had to create Group A and group B in the primary Games. We still had only one section in the Challenge Group (older students). Let's see what happens this coming year in the 2014 Games!
Monster Kids in Joliet
Here is a short video showing the boys and girls in grade 4 at St. Raymond's School in Joliet, Illinois. This school is next door to the University of St. Francis where I am working now as a professor in the college of education. I went to this classroom on Tuesday to work with the kids on the Monster project. I'll be going back soon to watch their Monster come to life. -- Mr. Smith

That video was awesome I like how you all worked together with so many different things.
Thank you, Morgan! Working with all the different materials really allows kids to be creative, don't you think? Thanks for commenting -- Mr. Smith

We liked all the different monster bits and how you made them (nice maggots!). We look forward to seeing your completed monsters.
Thank you! And the project members voted on the TOP Monster of 2010. It is from South Africa. See the results on the project site. - http://www.smithclass.org/proj/Monsters/index.htm

That is really cool that you are doing that! Hope the project goes well!
Thank you Collin. So far it is more fun than we can handle! Lots of thinking and discussing and designing toward what should be a very interesting Monster. Thanks for posting. -- Mr. Smith
