The "Young Historians"

This International Schools Cyberfair'99 Project about the Knights of Malta (the Order of St. John) was done by us students of Grade 7 students (our Grade 7 corresponds to Grade 5 in the U.S.) of San Andrea School during the scholastic year 1998-1999. In our school we have two Grade 7 classes: Grade 7.1 and Grade 7.2. In all we are forty-one Grade 7 students, wth our ages vrying between ten and eleven years old. Our History Teacher, Mr. Stephen Briffa, divided each class into four groups so that then, each of the eight groups chose one of the eight topics to do research on.
