Fifth-grade teachers at DuPont Hadley Middle Prep in Tennessee created class projects around one student's second battle with cancer. Students studied cancer cells in science class, wrote letters about their scientific discoveries in English class, and used their math class to plan and budget for an event that raised $1,300 for pediatric cancer research. "Our kids learned from the ground up what cancer is and how many millions of individuals suffer from it," principal Kevin Armstrong said.
