TeachersFirst's Webquest Resources

Other TeachersFirst Special Topics Collections

This collection of reviewed resources from TeachersFirst is selected to help teachers, parents, and students find, use, and create webquests.  Teachers can find examples of webquests across the curriculum (and places to find MORE). Both students and teachers can find tools for creating their own webquests. We have even included some sample web resources as terrific seeds for webquest ideas.

The webquest format has been around for years and can be adapted many ways. Start from this collection and consider designing a webquest "Task" that uses a collaborative, web 2.0 tool such as those reviewed in the TeachersFirst Edge listings. Today's students will love the authentic, creative tasks and collaboration made possible by today's tools.  TeachersFirst Edge reviews include ways to use the tools safely and within school policies, for a learning "win-win."

A fairly fast moving webquest, this activity nonetheless provides opportunities to delve into the world of utopias. It also bases the evaluation of the final student project on four subject areas: social studies, language arts, art history and science. An Internet link goes to a cyberguide for the novel.

In the Classroom

If you do not have enough time for en entire webquest, you may still want to do some of the activities or use the links with your class. A webquest is also an excellent independent activity for your more able students or for a gifted class, allowing you time to work in smaller groups with your struggling students. Bring in laptops for the webquest students to work in the room with you, if you have them available. Consider upgrading from paper to digital copies of the work for students to turn in afterward. Google Docs reviewed here or one of many creative. collaborative web 2.0 tools reviewed in the TeachersFirst Edge would be a great way for students to complete everything without killing trees and without creating a mess of papers on your desk later.

This webquest is an excellent introduction to the time of the Chinese Cultural Revolution through the eyes of a teenage girl. It is fairly compact yet packed with information not typically covered in depth in American classrooms. The quest activities vary from mapping to timeline making to writing from a different perspective, and all are grounded in reading the original novel, A Red Scarf Girl.

tag(s): chinese (48), evolution (100)

In the Classroom

Instead of the suggested Apple Works, try using Google Docs during planning and writing phases reviewed here or one of many creative, collaborative web 2.0 tools reviewed in the TeachersFirst Edge. Your students can work collaboratively without even being in the same place, and their projects can be shared easily on the web.

This extensive webquest on life in Medieval times includes all facets of life and provides multiple challenges to students to research, assimilate information, write, analyze and evaluate. The final group task (after multiple individual steps) is to analyze a problem from Medieval times and provide a suggested solution. The list of resources to use is extensive, and stduetns are also directed to infrmation about evaluating web-based srouces BEFORE they start the task. Although there is no actual Teacher Page, there is a listing of resources teachers might use and an invitaiton to submit further ideas via email.

tag(s): medieval (27)

In the Classroom

Review the process carefully to see if you need to adapt it in your situation. The teacher who designed this uses clips from a film (Ever After) and specific software packages (Inspiration, Publisher). There are certainly alternate ways to accomplish the same tasks if you do not have access to these exact resources. If you do not have as much time, you may want to use some portion of this webquest with your students. It is well-packaged for use in toto, if you wish!

One alternative would be having students turn in work via Google Docs, reviewed here, allowing for easy feedback from the teacher and no messy papers to grade.

This simple webquest is a great tool for teaching students the six main parts of plants, their jobs, and food samples of each part. Younger grades would need assistance navigating the webquest. The culminating activity (creating a book using six paper plates) is creative and "kid-approved". A detailed grading rubric is provided. Printables require Acrobat Reader.

tag(s): plants (144)

In the Classroom

Even if you do not have the time to complete the entire webquest, the culminating activity could easily be adapted to meet the needs of all ability levels. The link for growing your own lettuce, could be an interesting homework assignment or an at-home activity with parents. If you don't do it at school, put the link on your teacher web page for families to try.

This webquest is simple, well-designed and ready to go! Some of the activities include drawing pictures to represent the size of each type of honeybee, counting the sides of each cell of the hive, writing about the duties of the honeybees and more. All thinking skill levels are included from basic knowledge questions to evaluation activities.

In the Classroom

In lower grades, this activity would be great as a guided activity in the computer lab or on laptops in your classroom. If you only have a computer or two, you could do some of the activities as centers. The teacher could direct the students throughout some of the activities and allow them to complete the writing, math problems and drawing activities on their own. A detailed grading rubric is included.

Teachers can also take the activity a step further, and have students create podcasts explaining how and why honeybees are so important. Use a tool like PodOmatic (reviewed here), to help students along.

This beautifully crafted site provides students with in-depth information on American writers and their works. Students can use the site's search feature to zero in on an era in American history, a specific author, or a book title. The site features many video clips from the companion C-SPAN series. A high-speed connection is a must.

tag(s): authors (120), poetry (227)

In the Classroom

You can pick and choose not only which author you want, but what information you want to use. You can choose short video clips shown on a projector either as a lesson in themselves (using the suggested questions or ones of your own); you can create a webquest using a combination of both this site and other sites linked from it; or you can use this as a straightforward internet lesson, using the material presented on the site itself. It is easily expandable to history and you can watch the video, a video clip, or read the transcript. Video requires Real Player.

Designed for third graders, this webquest offers a great way for students to explore the explorer of their choice from a set of selected links. The site asks for independent research on each explorer, and it expects a portfolio of maps, descriptions, and other facts as the result. Depending on your requirements, this site could serve as a packaged explorers unit. Well worth a look. Aligned to national standards.

tag(s): explorers (61), webquests (29)

In the Classroom

Use this webquest to help students understand more about the explorers who came to the New World, as well as some critical thinking skills. Have students complete the task in cooperative learning groups to review and re-enforce content learned in lecture or discussion. Social Studies teachers will appreciate the hands-on activity!

Since the webquest was created, just a few of the links included have ceased working. Teachers will need to test all of them quickly and find replacements for sites where necessary.

Picture this: The high school in which you teach has hired an expert in criminal profiling to survey the student body with the intent of identifying potential future criminals. After reading through the survey, students are upset by this blatant invasion of personal privacy and decide to stage a protest. This WebQuest presents such a scenario, then asks students to research and select the style of "civil disobedience" that would be most appropriate and effective for resisting this policy. Aligned to Standards.

For the presentation, consider having students use Google Docs Presentation, reviewed here. This allows for easy feedback & sharing, and saves time from waiting for PowerPoint presentations to upload.

Using an 18th century New England midwife as a case study, this site introduces students to the intricate business of piecing together history from the fragments that have survived. Students can browse an online diary, use the site's "magic lens" tool to read the text, and gain some insight into the nuances of transcribing centuries-old handwriting. Challenge your students to explore and develop an understanding of the life and times of this colonial woman through her own words. The site also offers a chance to investigate a criminal case from 1789, using diary entries and corresponding court records.

tag(s): colonial america (107), england (57)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plans and activities offered on this site! The "Doing History" section would make an excellent webquest or classroom activity if teachers are willing to print out the resources. If doing it as a class, introduce the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector before dispersing materials and having students work on the activity in groups. The activity is a great way for students to understand bias, validity and differences that historians find among primary sources. This would also be an interesting way to reflect on the roles of women in society and how they may have changes.

Use this web-quest as a hands-on practice activity for students following a lesson on folk tales. Have students complete the activity in cooperative learning groups on classroom computers. Be sure to help your weaker readers and ESL students by sharing the vocabulary words prior to reading, either on a handout or by projecting on an interactive whiteboard and highlighting them in the text as you come to them. English teachers will like the interactive part of this site, and students always enjoy a chance to work on computers!

To make it more interactive, have students create and illustrate their stories on an online book-maker, such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Teachers can post the stories on the class webpage, allowing parents to get to see the finished products!
