Here are the comments from the judges; you can see there is much that they liked!
I really enjoyed seeing the pictures from Blue Mountain and Hungary. This is a wonderful site. It’s very creative and the students have great imagination. I loved the drawings and the stories.
I loved your creativity. The original art and the use of a variety of tools resulted in a very interesting site. I particularly liked the creative animal pictures and associated descriptions. Congratulations on your creative work!
Your site is very imaginative and entertaining.
I loved that this website worked in the same way as a choose your own adventure book and allowed the reader to visit all of the places along the way. That being said, the team did not address a helping focus, did not seem to have a theme around which the project was organized. Overall, the website was a very creative and unique idea that would have been improved with greater focus on a topic.
Your idea for an island was very creative! You had noticeably collaborative interactions on a regular basis. That was awesome!
Creative sections, especially the animal section.
