Ms. Howes Class: Half of the class will go on a Field Study with Mr. Dolnik's students. The other half will teach some of Mr. Dolnik's students about fractals through IPADs in class.

After the two day exchange: all students will have:
- Experience teaching and being taught by peers from the other content area.
- The opportunity to reflect and share what they learned about fractals, their content areas, and the experience of collaborative service learning projects.
