Students at Ganton School are regular contributors to SymbolWorld. Their
teacher Vivian writes: They all enjoy using the internet. Their favourite
site is SymbolWorld because it is bright and colourful and they can
navigate the site easily. Most importantly, they can understand what's
written because of the symbols.
Why don't you become a contributor? It can be very rewarding for students to to see their own ideas published on the web.
You can send material in any form. Things don't need to be perfect; we can tidy them up.
