For the last several days Edgewood's 7th graders have been studying Medieval China and Japan. They were required to make a 3-D object or research a topic for a poster related to the history or culture of China and Japan.  We've had some Mongol catapult competitions, "porcelain" displays, and Mongol/Samurai armor and weaponry among others.  It's been alot of fun, especially measuring how far a catapult will throw a ping pong ball!

With the increased use of images in school work, it is important to give credit to the creator of all images, after making sure the image is free to be used.  
Edgewood offers the Image Quest database with hundreds of images that are free to use in student work.  Students may also look for free images in Google by clicking on Settings in Google, then scrolling down to Usage Rights and selecting Free to Use.  Once the student has selected an image, that image must be cited.  Click the link below for guidelines on citing.
