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 through.

You can use words like Click here to go to the next page. Then link the words 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.
