In grade 6/7 Spanish Flex classes this semester we have been creating Spanish Country websites using iWeb. After the students had been allocated a Spanish speaking country to explore, students planned out their sitemap using Google Drawing, researched and collected their content in a Google Doc, chose an initial template design in iWeb and then created the basic site content over six pages:
- Home page
- About the author
- About the country
- Three different topics
They were then able to start to add interactive content to their pages, including an introduction video, a scrolling gallery page, embedded YouTube videos, embedded Google Maps sections, an Google Earth tour using QuickTime screen recordings and a complete journey using the My Maps feature of Google Maps.
Screenshots of some of the student’s website pages can be seen below :
