Project One: A Simple Website. A Day in the Life ... (of a Pet or Shoe)
Time to try to fit all the pieces together for the first time and make a simple website by using the HTML concepts we have covered so far.
The concept / content of this site is a "Day in the Life" (from the perspective of a shoe or a pet.). Use each page to create a snapshot of a specific time period in the day for your shoe or pet. Add photos (from the perspective of your shoe or pet), and commentary that reflects the specific activities happening at that time of day.
LINK all the pages together having all links to all pages on every page. You may additionally choose to have the links go from one page to the next. Be sure to include links back to the previous page.
Minimum times of day to be covered are 7am, 11am, 3pm, 7pm and 11pm. Add more times if you wish.
