2. What happens at each time?
3. Write the words for the time.

with your class and community. Example
Children's books online super index - Rosetta Project free, downloadable, illustrated
Make a new folder called time your initials. Example: timeco. In your time folder - make a folder to hold your images. Call it images. Save all your web pages in the time folder and place your image files in the image folder BEFORE adding them to the web pages. Each web page should be one time. Name each page based on the time. Examples: 1.html, 3.html or morn.html, after.html, or read.html, art.html, math.html, lunch.html Link the pages in order from the start to the finish to allow an easy read
You can use words like Click here to go to the next page. Then link the words to the next page.
Some people use arrows pointing to the right to show people how to go to the next page. Link the next page to the arrow image to make the connection to move to the next page.
Make a Main Title webpage that includes credits. Extra challenging: add
a linked index that allows visitors to go to a specific
time.Make your own illustrations using a computer or use
free web images to add pictures. Take digital photos in your community. Alternatively, you can scan in hand
drawn art. Be sure to save them in your images folder. Then add them to your web page.
