This activity introduces students to information on a given topic in a
format that provides structure and focus. This is a great way to give
students a jump-start on the Web with high-interest and high-quality
sites. Be aware, however, that it will take time for the instructor to
research those sites and come up with a useful collection.

- To introduce students to a collection of
high-quality resources available on the
Internet that relate to a given topic.
- To encourage students to look for specific details about
the topic at each site.
- To make available multi-media and interactive experiences outside of
what is available in the classroom (e.g. sound files, movie files,
interactive quizzes or activities, etc.).
- Assign students to visit 1 or 2 sites and report back to
the class, "jigsaw" style.
- Ask students to think of additional questions or tasks for the
"To Do" part of the sites.
- Have students create "To Go/To Do" activities for topics of their own
choosing. If they are unable to create a website, they can write or type
the information on paper.
