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."

Teachers who are developing on-line materials face a new challenge in the writing style required for these project. While this British treatment is likely overkill for the casual web page developer, writers can apply the general principles to even the smallest web endeavor. Mark this one as a useful reference tool.

This webquest gives high schoolers a tall order: come up with a workable renewable energy policy to work with a business. The quest offers leads to information on renewable resources and suggestions on areas in which these resources can be economically viable. The rest is up to your students. This one has lots of possibilities.

For the sales pitch presentations, consider having students use Google Docs, reviewed here, instead of Microsoft PowerPoint. This will make upload time faster and grading easier, as they can simply share them with your google account.

Here's a group project site that asks students to research Revolutionary War battlefields and select the one that they feel was most important as the site for a new museum. This project offers lots of web resources for research, but students could also work independently using a school-approved search engine. The site includes teacher instructions and notes. From the California SCORE program. Note: 2 of the links don't work, so teachers will need to find replacement sites for them before using.

tag(s): american revolution (89), battles (19), evolution (100), webquests (20)

In the Classroom

As an alternative, have students present their findings via an online poster creator, such as Padlet (reviewed here). Students will like doing something different than the typical poster, and it means less paper mess around the classroom!

This site is a group research project that could serve as the culminating activity for a Civil War unit. It asks students to "enlist" for a tour of duty and then chronicle the events and emotions that soldiers might have experienced during that tour. The site offers a collection of web links for beginning research, but students could also tackle this content using a school-approved search engine. Lots of creative possibilities here.

tag(s): civil war (142), webquests (20)

In the Classroom

For the end project, have students create their memoir in an online book, using a site such as Bookemon, reviewed here. This will make it easier for them to update and share the project.
