A Great Example of a Student Built Website

Last week I posted a review of the free website creation service Synthasite. This morning when I logged in to moderate comments, I found a comment from a middle school teacher in Omaha, Nebraska sharing a link to a project that his students created using Synthasite. These students created a website as the culminating activity for a unit of study about recycling and going green. The website is called Green Monkey Homes. I checked it out and found that it is an excellent piece of work that these students and their teachers should be proud of. Green Monkey Homes has practical tips for recycling, green living, and energy cost savings. Beyond those pages, Green Monkey Homes has an interactive quiz for visitors to check their knowledge and learn.
