Teacher Notes

Part A: Community calendar

As a class, you are going to make a calendar of special events for the next twelve months.  Your task is to write about one event for the class calendar.  Follow these instructions to make your contribution.

  1. Ask your teacher to give you an event to investigate from the list below.
  2. Research your event.  Begin by clicking on the name of the person who will provide some information about the event to help you.  You may also like to do some of your own research.
  3. Open up the calendar event entry page, by clicking on the name of your event.
  4. Add information to your page.  You will need to use the drop down arrows for the date, and click in the different sections to add you text.
  5. If you wish to save your work use the save button and make sure you write down the code so you can retrieve your work later.  When you have finished print out your page.
Contribute your page to make a class calendar.
