Caught in The Web

They're caught in a web.

Episcopal Academy, located in Pennsylvania, has a lot to offer. The students who attend the school seem to experience many interesting approaches to learning. Visitors to the school's website will find the approach interesting as well.

The Magical Drop of God's Love, a web-based version of the Kindergarten students' unique performance, should be interesting to anyone who has ever been to a school play. These bright young students produced a cross-curricular, multi-cultural, integrated performance that simply must be seen to be appreciated. Take a look.

In another Kindergarten class, the students produced an online Kindergarten Party after reading a story called "Mary Wore Her Red Dress." This online storybook shows that the students understand colors, and also understand the power of web-publishing.

The third grade students have published a most impressive collection of book reviews. If you're looking for a good book, you should definitely begin by consulting this collection of over two dozen student-produced book reviews. With careful reading, you'll be able to see the reviewer's tastes. Graham, for example, obviously is a fan of science-related themes. He gave "4 star" ratings, which are said to be "absolutely great," to "Jurassic Park," "Myst," and "The Hot Zone."

Valentine's Day may be long gone, but you'll still enjoy a visit to Wetherill House of Love. The fantastic artwork alone is reason to browse through the heart-related activity. Plus, you'll read some excellent student interpretations of "love." Like these: "Love is to be kind to others" and "Love is a glove."

With such fine work from the lower school students, Episcopal Academy has a bright and promising future ahead online.
