You have a lot of detail and information. You paragraphs are good sizes and your links go to a lot of different places; only two go to wikipedia. In the second paragraph with plants and animals it just list a lot of different animals, every sentence is about a different type of animal. You could add a little detail about them, like what they look like or something like that.

You have a lot of information and it's all accurate. Although it could use a few more links. I noticed that in the Animals and plants section you just listed a lot of stuff. I think you have really good detail through out the whole page, but esp. in the History section.

Hey Guys, The real strength in your page is the formatting. Your paragraphs are all a manageable length and the subtitles etc. are well chosen.

I think the weakness is that you could have had more content. Overall, there is a limited amount of information here. Another weakness is that there are a number of spelling errors on your page that could have been edited out.

Nice.... you guys had very good content in kid friendly language. And also had a lot of great formatting strengths. I did notice that there wasnt much content and you only had two pictures. I think you could have done a bit more. Overall, I will give you a 96. Great effort.

This was a pretty good post. You had good information, but not much of it. There are some grammar mistakes, too. If you just add a little more links and pictures, this would be a solid page. I would give you guys a 87 or a 3 from a
1-5 scale.

I'm surprised that lake baika is the largest lake in the world. I have always belived that it was lake michigan but I guess I am wrong. I found ot very interesting that it also is the oldest lake in the world that is what really made me want to keep reading on. Probably a thing that you should of worked on more is for a bubbleshare or more pictures to give me more of a visual insite on what it looks like. ( it's the largest lake in the world, what the hack does it look like .) The last thing that really caught my attension was your formatting and links. You had tons of external links and you had no problem with your subtitles so good system. Actually I noticed another problem with your page that needs to be fixed. You need to talk about how it influences the lives of the native people and what kind of a impact it has on russia. Yall had a fairly decent page and I feel you will strongly suceed.

Hey, you have a awesome topic with so many possibiltys, but I dont think yoou fully embraced that. So many topics were left unexplored. You could tlk about its importance to the Russian people, or its exports.
