Wrinkle in Time Independent Projects

During our Wrinkle in Time novel study, students pursued topics of independent study related to themes and events in the book. Many students, inspired by their knowledge, completed optional projects to demonstrate their learning. All I can say is WOW.

This work is a product of passion, persistence, and just plain cleverness. If you have a comment or a compliment, please leave a comment below. Thank you!
