This Pesach (Passover) holiday webquest is for children to identify the items on a Seder Plate and discuss the symbolism of each item. Children need to have the basic computer skills of mouse clicking and opening files. The webquest represents a new challenge in computer skills, a focused Internet search. On the menu bar on the left, there are tabs for Home, Task, Resources, and a Teachers Guide. Under Resources, find a Seder Plate Game, Coloring Pages, a tic-tac-toe game, and more.

tag(s): hebrew (19), holidays (152), jews (25)

In the Classroom

The Teacher's Guide suggests pairing your student with an older buddy to provide another learning opportunity; the kindergartener and older "buddy" will learn communication and cooperation skills by working together. Display the WebQuest on an interactive whiteboard or with a projector, and discuss the goals with students. Then, have them work in pairs to complete the WebQuest. Once they have all completed the WebQuest, have the students and buddies post what they learned about the Seder Plate, symbolism, and communication. Use a tool like Dotstorming, < a href="/single.cfm?id=16997">reviewed here. With Dotstorming students can have video, images, text, audio, voting & make comments in a chat box. Allow students to make comments on each other's finding to extend the communication process.

This random name or word picker tool offers two different methods for selecting names from a list. Enter each name or word on a different line, copy and paste from a spreadsheet or word document if available. Choose the typewriter to view a scrambled word letter-by-letter. The fruit machine reveals a choice with a slot machine, choose the button Remove to delete used words from the list as you play.

In the Classroom

The obvious use for this tool is for selecting students to answer a question or do an activity. Other uses could include forming groups/pairs or creating seating charts. Allow students to use it when it's time to choose the next student. Instead of names, enter activities for P.E., rainy day recess activities, the next book your class will read together, or anything where you need to make a choice. Enter vocabulary words and use the word picker to practice definitions, or have one student provide the definition for a selected word and other students guess the word.
