Third grade students met for the first time with the high school students at the high school computer lab to work on a project that addressed the question:  What happened on the day you were born?  This project included answering guiding questions as follows:

What famous people do you share a birthday with?

What news making events occurred on the day you were born?

How did most people spend their free time when you were born?

Students used Google Docs to record their research.  This was an introductory research project to their final research project.  It was amazing how much the high school students enjoyed working with the third graders. 

I have to say how exciting it was to watch how excited the third graders were and how engaged the high school students were.
