    Im thinking about creating a class website/blog.

    In search for a great culminating project for our "travel buddy" project, I thought it might be fun to, as a class, create a website featuring our project, using shared writing as a means of creating stories/accounts/summaries of what we've learned, etc. I've got a ton of photos of both our kids as well as the children in other countries with our buddies and would love to share them worldwide, to go along with our theme.

    We wouldn't be blogging this year, as the year is almost over, but I figured for next year's class we can add a blog to our site, and keep a "running record" of our experience via our travel buddies.

    I know the ePals features a school blog, and that I can create a class website through scholastic, both safe, secure, school based websites for creating something for our class, but I was looking for something that combined these features and hosted both sites and blogs.... But, I could just go with ePals and only do a blog, just start it this year...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Weebly has a blog template. I'm not sure if Wikispaces does, but you might want to check.

    I like both, and both are free for teachers.

    You can basically make a wiki very easily on shutterfly.com I actually have a butterfly webquest up on it- that I just made within the last month or so. It is very easy to use and fun!
