WebQuests are a wonderful way to build your students’ critical background knowledge, reading and technology literacy skills. As stated by Wikipedia, “A WebQuest is a learning activity used by educators. During this activity learners read, analyze, and synthesize information using the World Wide Web”.
To learn more about finding, creating and sharing WebQuests, I highly recommend that you visit WebQuest.org. If you are interested in the research that supports using WebQuests in the classroom, click here.
Using the “Find a WebQuest” feature on WebQuest.org, I found these WebQuests about my favorite topics:
- Using the search term “food,” I found this WebQuest about British holidays.
- Using the search term “travel,” I found this WebQuest that simulates travel to major cities in the World.
- Using the search term “books,” I found this WebQuest for ESL students where they get the opportunity to research comic book characters, design their own, then make a sample comic book.
