Tackk: Student Website creator

Students, today is a big day because for the first time in the history of this middle school, all students have their own email address. Congratulations on being the first group of kids to do this. These email addresses are going to open up a lot of possibilities for us in learning about the ancient world. Today, we are going to take our email address and create an account with so we can make a permanent website. With our own account, you will be able to work on your website anywhere that has internet. We have practiced with Tackk in the Stone Age, now let's take it a step further and make a dynamic Mesopotamia website.
