Now that you have learned about many of the famous landmarks in Paris, imagine that have taken a trip there and have compiled a scrapbook to show your family and friends what you have seen and learned. Choose at least five landmarks to feature in your scrapbook. Explore the Internet links on this page and look for good facts, quotations, examples, images, sound clips and video files. What's collected can then be pinned on a classroom bulletin board, pasted into an in-class newsletter, featured in a student-made multimedia stack, or posted as a Web page. Bon voyage!!
Keep this question in mind as you work:
1. When was the landmark constructed?
2. Why or for what purpose was it constructed?
3. What was its significance in history and its importance today?
- Explore the Internet sites linked below. You're looking for facts, quotes, examples, images, sound clips, videos, and animations that you think are important aspects of the topic.
- When you find something you like, check its Web page for a copyright notice. Often, students are encouraged to copy things that will only be used in the classroom. Sometimes people don't want their work copied at all. A good practice is looking for an e-mail link on the page and then using it to ask permission.
- Copy any text you want by dragging across the words, then using the Edit - Copy command on the menubar. Paste what you highlighted into a basic text editor, word processor, desktop publishing program or multimedia program.
- Save images you like by downloading them. Paste the images you've downloaded into a multimedia, paint or desktop publishing program (like HyperStudio, Clarisworks, or PageMaker) or use one of the graphics viewers listed as Tools on this page to display your collection of images.
- Be prepared to cut anything that copyright owners tell you they don't want you to have.
- Once you have collected your information, go over it carefully so that you can give clear and thoughtful reasons why you found the things you collected especially important.
