question mark. Make a Month Based Internet Hunt


Before you begin this challenge, it would help you to try a couple hunts. Test drive a few that are of interest to you.
Test drive the Google hunt so you can harness its many features to make a cool hunt.

This exercise is about harnessing resources. Consider carefully which link might yield the info you need.
I would not look in a gardening web site for facts about computers, for example.

Use a Fact of the Day site to find some facts about things that happen in the selected month.
Once you have the fact, harness other resources to seek out additional information.

Although you might start looking in the same site, you must use a different site for each answer.
(Hint: It is considerably easier to find an answer and write a question based on it, than to search and search for the answer to your question.)

Write the question, the answer, and the name of the site for finding each answer. If you are using an open computer document
for writing the answers, paste the actual web page address that contains the answer.

"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there
