USING HOAX SITES--DR. MARY ANN BELL

HOAX SITES ARE FUN FOR GETTING STUDENTS TO SIZE UP WEB PAGES!
Note: As with any resource, do review these pages before using them.

The Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency
You can rest easy knowing we are protected by this little known federal agency, FVZA.

California's Velcro Crop So that's where it comes from!

Museum of Hoaxes

Martin Luther King Hate Site This is not a "fun" hoax site but a hate site whose real purpose is veiled. Teachers and librarians need to be aware of this page.

This is another objectionable but "for real" site...a Holocaust Denial page.
