It sounds great. I hope students use it though (i'm not one to check out your websites... I have enough to check out already)

“Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple, learn how to look after them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.”

John Steinbeck

This is one of the quotes that came up on that site. I really like this quote because it relates to brainstorming and starting our globalisation projects. You start of struggling... then... all of a sudden one small idea comes into your mind. Then straight after another closely related to the first idea then another and another, until you have job to choose one idea of the many ideas. This is the hardest part for me... Deciding.

Linking this back to the website. I bet that this is what happened when one person thought of this idea it grew and grew until it was this big idea including multiple people.

Yup, thats all I have to say.

Mr Woody it would be cool to get involved in this. Maybe you could do it with the next years gate class.
It would be good be be like Reporoa College and Lynmore Primary.

Yeah, FOrest destruction is a major problem in the world right now. I think it's cause of the demand for paper. DO you think paper has something to do with GLobalization. Because of the trees being cut down, the mileage (export) of paper, and yeah! But if all the valuable resources (petrol, energy) we can turn to wood. It is good because wood is a recyclable resource!
