Exercise Monday

Goal: Practice creating basic HTML webpages, with special attention toward spacing and indentation. As we begin to explore more and more complex code, proper indentation and spacing will become downright vital to maintaining clean, easy-to-manage projects. Begin developing these good habits now!

Warm Up


Discuss the following with your partner:

  • What does the abbreviation HTML stand for?
  • Why does indentation and spacing matter?
  • How do you know if a tag is an opening or closing tag?

Code


Indentation & Spacing Practice

Before continuing, go back and carefully check the indentation and spacing in your my-first-webpage.html and favorite-things.html files. After fixing them up, do another commit, ask a teacher to double-check your indentation and spacing by putting in a help request, then push again to GitHub.

Pet Websites

Now it's your turn!

Make a homepage for your cat or a blog for your dog. You can get creative here! Maybe include information about their favorite toys and their favorite activities.

Don't forget to make a new project folder, commit regularly and push to a remote repository on GitHub. Continue to pay close attention to indentation and closing all tags you open.

Of course, you're more than welcome to make webpages about anything you want - these are just suggestions.

Ask a teacher to check the indentation and spacing by putting in a help request before you move on.
