TUESDAY – Warm up: Continents Quiz – Get 100% TWICE before going on to anything else.

Activity: Phase 2 of our website creation.

Step 1: Create Pages – Your website must have the following pages: About Me, Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, and your elective. (no PE page).

Step 2: Add text and images to your home page. Make sure you navigate BACK to the home page after adding pages. Add two text boxes to the page. In the first box, share what you are excited about in your first year at Scenic Middle School. In the second box, share what you are nervous about in your first year as a middle school student.

Next, INSERT an image that expresses the emotions you feel with the statement in each text box. Play around with the resizing and moving tools for each box to achieve “balance” on your home page.

WARNING!! DO NOT CLICK ADD FOOTER BUTTON! This will add the same thing to EVERY page in your site.

Step 3: Publish your site. Each every time you make a change to your site from this point forward, you MUST click the publish button for changes to become active.
