After each group has gathered necessary information about its particular subject it is time to arrange it all into a web page.

Cooperating with their IT teacher and with the help of a link explaining how to do it, students create a web page.

Evaluation

The best way to evaluate their work, is for students to publish their page and watch out for the likes, clicks and comments.
