Thank you.
Wow. I am working with the G/T students at my school and while library time is too short to do this with the kids but it is perfect for those students who have the time. Thank you.

Thank you for the ideas. This would be great to do vertically with students and take a day to do something fun like this to get other teachers to buy in to the ideas.
