Conclusion This project was very intense and fun! The slide show was the most intense thing we did. Noah also enjoyed the slide for Slifka. Noah’s favorite part was getting the jelly beans. Jared’s favorite part was hunting for the rat picture. It was also enjoyable to listen to Glory complain about how this project was not important and boring as heck. We also enjoyed when Glory said Slifka was retarded that was not nice. It was nifty to learn all about the history and what the United States has gone through and developed. It was also sweet to learn about the other countries and how they also developed things we never thought of. Over all Noah and Jared worked well together! YA
