    My students have been busy working on the landmark challenge for 2010. Click this link to learn more about the landmark challenge. In short, 48 teams from schools across the globe choose a landmark anywhere on the planet Earth. The individual teams write nine clues for their landmark and the other team try to figure out the landmark using the clues. This challenge takes four weeks. Each week 3 of the nine clues are released to the teams. Also you are allowed to ask three yes or no questions of each team.
    We have been busy plugging away at the different landmark and are stumped on this landmark from Team Mendelowe4B in Cinnaminson, NJ. We do know this landmark is in the United States and not related to the Lucy the Elephant from our yes or no question. Do you have any ideas? If so, email our classroom at lafayette4@gmail.com. Tell us about the different search terms you used so we can learn from the process.

    Carl Brashear
    Throughout his like Carl, worked hard to break the color barriers in the Navy. Carl Brashear was born in 1931 and grew up as a poor child in Tonieville, Kentucky. He loved swimming (and I mean “loved swimming”). He quit school in 7th grade to put food on the family’s table. At 18, he went to Salvage School in NJ. He tried and tried to get in the Navy for a long time but finally on February 25, 1948 he got in the Navy as the first black master (Elite) diver. Later on Jan 17th 1966 a B-52 bomber and a KC-135 (tanker) collided near the cost of Polamares, Spain. The B-52 bomber carried 4 nuclear bombs, Brashear tried to recover one but a cable snapped and he lost his leg. After wards he was rushed to the nearest military hospital to save his leg. Later his leg was amputated by Carl’s choice. He became the first amputee Navy diver. On April 1, 1979 he retired from the Navy. Sadly on July 25, 2006 he died from heart failure at 75 years old. He was buried at Woodlawn Memorial Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia. Carl Brashear was not famous like Olympic athletes. He became famous because he saved lives and never gave up. By Hayden Alden

    Welcome Friends From Around the Globe
    Our fourth grade class is nestled in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Our students come from three local towns, Franconia, Sugar Hill, and Easton. We are the only fourth grade class at Lafayette Regional School. Inside the classroom students are busy building, creating and contributing to the global world. Our eleven students are eager to start many different projects such as the monster project, global newspaper and pinwheels for peace. To help complete our assignments, each student is provided with a laptop. Outside of school the children spend time in the woods exploring the wilderness. We hope to develop many friendships around the world. To keep track of our classroom and our adventures, visit our website at mrferguson2009.wikispace.com. Also feel free to send an email (lafayette4@gmail.com ) or skype (lafayette41).
