J turned in his first "big" project today - a written report and a diorama about the white rhinoceros. If I could figure out how photos are organized on this new-to-me laptop, I'd upload one of the proud 2nd grader with his diorama (complete with adult rhino munching grass on the savanna, in front of some trees and a lovely sunset).
Now it's M's turn to complete a 'report' (they can be creative, making a poster, book, etc.) about Colorado. I'm not quite sure why she picked it, but she perked up quite a bit when we heard stories about Colorado on the news last night.
