Porter sometimes kept journals on his photographic trips around the world. Similar to a journal, the Activity Log will help students navigate through the site. The log covers each of the three sections of the Web site. Three or four class periods may be required to complete the log. You may want to assign one section at a time. Individual sections should take one or two class periods.

Teachers, please print and make copies of the Activity Log for each student. Students will use the activity log at the computer. Please preview the log and site before your students embark on their virtual journey.
