The history project that fourth- and fifth-graders at Camas Ridge Elementary School in Eugene, Ore., have worked on since last year isn't limited to Donna DuBois' classroom. The students gathered old photos and historical information about 20 sites in their city, such as the train station and the public market, and made short videos about each one, as well as QR codes for smartphones. The project earned the support of Mayor Kitty Piercy, as well as business owners who posted signs to alert visitors to the QR codes for each site.
