project will entail descriptions of our physical education training programs
as they pertain to the global, physical and social development of our
students, pictures and news articles related to Special Olympics activities.

explore our program and our students would respond to any questions that may
be presented. Students would be required to use the digital camera for photo
portfolio and the downloading of pictures. Students will also be responsible
for research on Special Olympics using the Internet and local information.
