Online Guidelines – In Plain English?

May 17, 2010

Well I have an idea for you – I have been wanting to make the NIST Online Guidelines easier for people to understand.

With there being no school this week I thought some of you might be up for a fun challenge.

The challenge would be to make the Online Guidelines (click on the link below) into an “In Plain English” video.

If you take up the challenge and you finish the task then just upload it to youtube and send it in.

Good Luck

My turtle is small,

so it went to the mall.

 He brought a fish,

and a made a wish.

 The turtle was grumpy,

so he went to hungry.

 He ate a small  gum,

and had lots of fun!

 The turtle had lots of guts,

so he made a big hut. 

 He went to have a leep,

and went to sleep.

 All alone in the darkness there was that checky little turtle.
