Over 8,000 websites created by students around the world who have participated in a ThinkQuest Competition.
Alaska's Blooming Beauties
Our entry provides an overview of Alaskan Wildflowers,
plants in general, and the beauty that can be seen throughout
Alaska. In addition to showcasing Alaskan Wildflowers,
we wanted to encourage viewers to learn more about plants
and Alaska than they knew before entering our site.
In attempting to encourage learning in a fun way, we
included many games and activities that may be used in the
classroom to facilitate learning about plants and
wildflowers in their own areas. We also provide a way to
include students' efforts on our web site so that others may
learn about local wildflowers all over the U.S. and the world.
Our personal objectives were to teach our children how to
research a subject from a variety of angles, and to take the
knowledge gained and learn to present it, using multiple facets
of lay out and design, on the web. We also wanted to ensure
that each child learned about and used all of the skills
required to complete a web page from start to finish. It
was also important that our team learn to identify, appreciate,
and utilize the individual strengths of each team member.
Our ultimate goal was to make a page that would foster
learning for ALL ages.
