Internet Literacy via Hoax Websites

These harmless websites (Pacific Tree Octopus DHMO) look real but are full of fake information. I could use them for teaching internet literacy and identifying reliable online sources. I wonder how many other fake websites are out there? Are you reading one now?

And there are plenty more at Museum of Hoaxes. Just be sure to preview all websites yourself before showing them to anyone else. There are some nasty and even malicious sites out there...
