You may print and copy the Activity Sheet and Word Find for students before beginning the activity. Students will need to know how to click on links and use the "Back" buttons on the toolbar.

You may want to do a lesson to introduce the tool bar and how it is used and show how the tools on the tool bar are to be used.
