  1. Hi Devon,
    I went to listen to you at the BYTE conference and had a few questions for you. How often do you work on these Project Based activities? Also, how much time per day do you work on these activities? I teach at a colony school and teach Gr. 1 – 4 and I have pre-Ks starting in one week. Great job at the conference by the way! Thanks for answering my questions as I would like to start these projects in my classroom.
