Agriculture Websites

The students in our Geography class made websites that highlight important information about agriculture in Quebec.

The site the students used to construct their websites is  I like using Weebly because it is easy to use and at the same time, it has enough features to produce nice results.  Also, it is free.

Another good site which we used is  Scribble Maps allows students to draw and color on Google Maps.  The resultant production can then be embedded in a website.  The students used Scribble Maps to identify the agricultural areas of Quebec and  the different physiographic regions of the province.

The students used to create embeddable charts.  I like Chartgo because it is simple to use and the results are aesthetically pleasing.

Here are a couple of examples of the websites produced by students:
