Twelve-year-old Jenna Salisbury liked the different varieties of food that can be prepared for breakfast.

THOMAS â€” In a murder trial, the most valuable evidence is a credible eyewitness to the crime, said WWII Jewish survivor Gloria Glantz.
"So I am giving you my testimony which makes you all eyewitnesses," said Glantz.

With the help of a video camera, students could see, listen to and ask questions of Glantz. At the other end of this live feed, Glantz could see the class, speak with them and answer their questions.
