Ahhh! So we are turning into MacDonalds now, catching them young. ;)

I suppose it's all good fun for the kids but I wonder if anyone else sees an underlying motive?

No, I'm in Denmark.

The downloadable lesson plans lets teachers indoctrinate, sorry, incorporate Google into classes. It's a good job Google is such a fluffy brand. Imagine if Exxon ran a similar competition.
