Some Kids I CAN Help

I have a crazy love passion for the Internet.
It makes things happen. It connects. It HELPS.

Last night almost as an afterthought I asked for help with this project I'm working on with some delicious fifth graders. There are 60 kids working beautifully and THINKING so hard, it is the joy of my days lately. Anyway, I tossed out a small handful of their topics, and already one person wrote to offer a resource.

SO, just in case there are more people out there with expertise on any of these topics, I cannot resist listing them below. Please forgive me for the annoying advertisement like this for something totally unrelated to the rooster, but since I'm not a heck of a lot of help to him these days, it feels therapeutic to help someone else's kids.
