Any good youtube videos or website for wiring junction box?

Hey guys. I'm looking for a sanity check on wiring a junction box. It's been awhile. Specifically, one wire in and two wires out (each going to an outlet. Any help?

Connect all like wires together. All blacks get tied together. All whites get tied together. All bare copper grounds get tied together.

Just a couple things to add.
1. The box should also be connected to the grounds.

2. The box should be visible/accessible

In the US, plastic junction boxes are not required to be connected to the ground wire unless there are metal parts.

2. The box should be visible/accessible
A junction is not required to be visible, only accessible.
