1 Evaluating a Website

Students will first evaluate a website and report whether it is a good resource for a project about octopuses using Survey Monkey.  Then students will watch the video about not believing everything on the Internet.  Follow up discussions can take place in person or using an online discussion board.

Student Instructions

A friend of mine has created a website and needs your help.  Please look at the website called, Save The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus and decide if the website is good for elementary students to use for research about octopuses. 

Then, go the the Zapitopi Tree Octopus Evaluation Survey, and complete the survey online. 

Finally, watch the Evaluating Websites video.  We will discuss your opinions and observations together. 

Remember, we want your help and value your honesty and good ideas.
