High Desert Middle School: Mrs. Meredith's Class Project on the Wonders of the World


Here is a list of some amazing places in the world, and some good web resources to help you learn more!


The best way to cite a website you use in your project is this: 

Author [if known]. "Title" [main title, in italics, if applicable]. Last date updated or revised [if known]. URL (web address) of page. (Date page was accessed).


For example, this website, http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A13856970, the citation would be
        "Tenochtitlan- Island City of the Aztecs".  November 15, 2006.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A13856970.
