Thank you to all who have come before us with the seedlings for these activities that we have tended to and grown in our own classrooms, in our own way.  We are truly grateful for all of the ideas that serve as the foundation of our workshops.  Also, a big thank you to all of the web developers and hosts of educational web sites that work hard to keep them free and accessible  to all teachers and students.
