My friend Heather came to me a while back to ask if I could help her with a project. She was a college student at the time, and as part of her final project in an education class, she was required to put together a "WebQuest."
We found the teacher's brief description of this teaching tool confusing, but an Internet search found a couple of sites that explain this concept clearly and provide good examples:
The WebQuest Page at San Diego State University
The project called for a quest that teaches basic hygiene skills to 3rd- and 4th-graders, but our finished product could be appropriate for older and younger pupils as well. Here is the Webquest we came up with:
Help Dirty Doug Learn Hygiene Skills
If you happen to be teaching such a class, please feel free to use it.
