Paragraph describing the website’s characteristics and how the website could be
used as a resource:
There is no listed author or contact information. The publishers’ website appears to
be more legitimate than the current site. This page describes and shows the carbon
dioxide oxygen cycle. There are no dates for when it was produced or updated. All
of the links on the page are in working order. The website’s layout is geared towards
young children.

Paragraph describing the website’s characteristics and how the website could be

This website appears to be a decent source of information. Key items are
highlighted and set as links within the reading. There are some places on the site
that appear to be ads. There are links to buy the publications from which this
information was extracted. There is not an original publish date, but it was updated
in 2010. This would be out of date by most standards.

Paragraph describing the website’s characteristics and how the website could be
used as a resource:
I like that on this website when you mouse over the cycle at the top, boxes appear
explaining the steps. This website would be good for a higher age group than fifth
graders. It is mostly words and 2 images. Many of the links do not work.

Paragraph describing the website’s characteristics and how the website could be
used as a resource:
This website has no author listed. I had to go into the web address bar and delete
most of the URL to find out where it was coming from. There is one picture of a
cycle at the bottom of the page. Most of the writing on it is illegible because of the
colors of the picture. There is one link and it worked.
