Eighth Grade Websites

Eighth grade social studies Middle School teacher Bob Hawkin's students have been researching the Revolutionary War.  Working with partners they used their research to design a website.  ( They used Weebly  because it has an easy drag and drop website editor.)

It was difficult, however we selected two to share with you.

Here are the students email addresses if you would like to send these students a congratulations message.
