The Youth Literature Festival, sponsored by the University of Illinois, brought a number of children’s authors to Urbana-Champaign. One author, Barb Rosenstock, visited with the students at Wiley and helped bring to life the story of of a camping trip historical figures John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt (yes, that Teddy Roosevelt) embarked on. Ms. Rosenstock had help from two Wiley fifth graders. The News-Gazette had a nice write-up on the event. You can read it here: Young fans provide children’s author’s best reward.

Wiley 5th grade students recently made a visit to Krannert Center, where they collaborated with members of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Consilience Project, which is part of the University’s I-STEM Education Initiative. I-STEM published a great story about the visit and the students’ work with this group. The story can be found here: http://www.istem.illinois.edu/news/consilience.html
