Students will be instructed as to what hardware/software we will
Students will be instructed as to what the final project is and will
be given a timeline.
Students will be assigned a computer, digital camera and a disk.
Students will be assigned a partner. (only if there are to many
students in the class.)
Step Two (Digital Camera)
Students are to take 4 pictures.
When the students are done, they
will come back to their assigned
When they get to their computer
they will be given very basic
instruction on how photo deluxe
Students will be given instructions on how to
• Get a photo
• Touch a photo up
• Save a photo as a gif/jpeg
• Trim a photo
Students will be given free time to work on their pictures
they took in step 2.
The next step, students will use the scanner.
Students will be instructed prior to this day to bring in a
baby picture for scanning.
Students will place their picture on the scanner and proceed
to scan their picture.
The picture will upload automatically to photo deluxe.
Students will use the skills they learned prior to this when
they took pictures with the digital camera and worked in
They will be instructed to trim, do an instant fix, add text
to it and save it as a jpeg.
Students will be instructed to get on the Internet
and to download a picture of interest.
They will be given instructions as such:
• Find a picture you like.
• Take your pointer and hold it over the picture you like.
• Click on the picture and hold your mouse down.
• The student will see that a dialog box will appear and they are to click on the
words “save this image as.”
• Another dialog box will appear asking where to save this image.
• They will be instructed to re-name the image and save it to their folder on
Students will be given a test of their skills. The
test will include the following.
• Take a picture of anything
• Insert the picture into photo deluxe
• Crop it (trim)
• Add text to it
• Fix the pictures color (if needed)
They will be required to do the same thing with a
picture that they have scanned and a picture they
downloaded from the Internet.
All this work that you are giving the students to
do, taking pictures, downloading pictures and
scanning them is going to help the student when
they are building their personal web page. It will
also help them when building their cultural web
page (which is their final project). .
Building a Web Page, Step 1
• Students will decide on
what they want their
web pages to consist of.
Students will be assigned
a specific topic to
research from the
internet from list that
Building a Web Page, Step 1, continued
The students will be given specific things they are to find on
the internet. Students will be given some internet sites to
assist them in looking for their topic that was assigned to
them. For example if they were assigned food, then they
would look for the following items:
• Navajo Taco recipe
• Fry Bread
• Chile Beans
• Pictures as well of these foods
You are to give the child at least 3 class periods to find this
information. That is more than enough time to search and
download all that they need. Students are to save this work
in a file on the desktop titled “Cultural Web Page.”
Students will be given sites that they can visit on the web to
help make their web page look nice. The sites are as follows:
• These sites will help the students with their web
page a lot.
Construction Zone 2
Students will need to have some more
time to browse these sites and to
explore their options. They will need
to be reminded to save their work
under the “Cultural Web Page” Folder
on the desk top.
Construction Zone 2 cont.
Students will as a class go to the site,
and make a title for
their first page. We will as a class design
the first page together.
Starting the Web Page, Step 2
Show a sample page using a
projector to view your work on
Instruct your students to open
Go to File, New and then scroll
down to blank page. This will allow
students to open a blank document
where they will “build their web
Starting the Web Page, Step 2 cont.
Students will be able to download their
text that they designed in
flamingtext.com. Then we will begin adding
text (information about what ever topic
they were assigned) and pictures. By now
the students will be familiar enough with
the program, that they will be able to go
Designing a Web Page cont.
Students may begin to
“clown” around and get
impatient, but if you
have good classroom
management, you will
be able to keep them
on track. Just remind
them that they will be
able to design their
“own web page” when
they finish this one.
Designing a Web Page cont.
Again, you will need to
set a deadline to have
page one complete, and
a deadline for the rest
of the pages. This will
be up to you and how
quickly your kids will
adjust to this
This project is not something that can be
done in a week or even two weeks. I would
suggest you take our time and not rush
through it. It can be done in possibly 3
weeks, but even that is pushing it. Don’t
rush the kids, because they will get scared
and not want to do it. My biggest advice is
to be patient.
Once the students have completed their
pages (I would only assign 3 at the most
per group or person.), You will review with
them how to link a page. This sounds hard
but it really is not that hard at all. You
should practice this first before you do it
in front of your class.
On the top of the tool bar in After you have found the

but again be patient.
Saving Your Work
This is a very important part of
designing your “Cultural Web Page.”
You must remember after each time
you insert text or pictures to save
your work. If you don’t, you’ll find
out what happens.
You will need to go around to each
group and check their work. See if
they need any help. If you get some
kids that are advanced, let them help
each other. Kids don’t feel so
threatened when a peer helps them.
View Your Web Page
If you are lucky enough, you can veiw
your web pages by projecting them on
a large screen. The students will love
to see their work before it is
uploaded to the net.
Uploading your work!!
You will have your technology specialist
come in and work with you and the kids on
uploading the pages to the schools server.
Each school is different. You will need to
plan this before you do this big project.
You need to make sure that you can put it
on your server or that your school even has
a web page, before you do all this work.
Viewing Your Work, part 2

your work, have the
kids get on the
internet and look at
You have now just designed a “cultural Web
Page.” Good Job. You should be a little
familiar with all this software, hardware
before you begin. This can be done, it is
not that complicated. Just remember,
don’t rush the kids or they will be afraid.
Good Luck on your web page…..
