EdTech 502: Week 8 Jigsaw Activity

For this weeks assignment we learned how to create tables for our webpage.    The purpose of a table is for displaying data and other information that is best presented in rows and columns.  Formatting the table was completed with the CSS file.  Tables are used in webpages, but their formatting is rather cumbersome.  The preferred use is to use CSS with absolute positioning and floats.

My “Jigsaw Activity” which includes a table is for a lesson on Vikings:

Viking Jigsaw ActivityThe Jigsaw activity was the inspiration of Elliot Anderson developed in the 1970s.  For more information about Jigsaw activities and design you can click on this Jigsaw Link.

I can see real value in using this type of format for collaborative lesson plans.
