First, they will discover the secret character that every browser looks for.
Next, they will learn how to create an HTML file using special tags and how to view the page.
By the end of this Learning Activity the student will have a template that he or she can use to quickly create new web pages in the future.
Once they learn how to build a web page they will be more interested in learning how the Web works and who actually built the Web and why.
