Steps for the Activity

  1. Enable the <style> tag.

    • Remix My Favorite Animal project. If you did the previous Intro to HTML activity, sign in to Thimble & find your project under your username & My Makes.

  2. Experiment with CSS tags.


  • Desktop or laptop
  • Internet access
  • Creative juices


Can you identify all the changes that happened on the page when you enabled the <style> tag?
