Check out the many easy tutorials listed on the Web Page Authoring Resources page at http://lone-eagles.com/webdev.htm or try this simple activity:
Here's a short introduction to the HTML method of creating a web page. This can be a great way to use any wordprocessor to allow your students to create working web pages with full student control for entering text, hyperlinks to any web resources, and display of any ".gif" and/or ".jpg" image files. The recommended first activity would be for students to create a page of resource links for a topic they are studying.
To create your first web page enter the following using any wordprocessor and save your web page as a text file only, using the extension: ".htm" Example: "myfile.htm"
Select "Text only" when saving. Then, select "File/Open" in your web browser's "File" menu to view the file as a finished web page.
For the MYPIC.GIF image to display, you must first save an image to the same location you're saving your web page in order for it to display on your browser. To save any image or animation from any web page simply point to it with the cursor and hold down the RIGHT mouse button (single button for Macs) and select "Save Image As." Click "Save" to save the image in the exact same location you'll be saving the following web page.
You can link additional web pages to this first web page by adding hyperlinks with a filename only, instead of a web address as shown below, as long as the additional web pages are saved in the same location as your first page. Try it!
