Looks like it has been a month since I last posted anything. I am so excited because I spent the 3-day weekend working on a Homesteading website. My students will work their way through the website hamiltonhomesteader.weebly.com to learn more about homesteading in Nebraska. My website uses google forms and weebly surveys to hand in electronic assignments. I used google forms, Adobe pdfs, canva.com, and puppet pals app to create a game version for learning.
One night last week the idea came to me and I wrote out pages of information about what I wanted the students to learn, what order they would go in, how many Homesteading Points (HPs) they would earn, bonus games, etc. I finally got a chance this weekend to sit down in front of my computers and iPad and create it. I plan on using this new website with tours downtown, to the courthouse, and the Plainsman Museum.
