A few weeks ago I was approached by our science department for assistance with students making websites. From this we developed a plan to have students create a rough draft of five slides using Google Draw. These five slides transferred information to a five page website.
To develop some consistency with the sites, I created five templates that would have the basics but allow for some creativity.
