Webquests are one of my favourite activities to facilitate with my classes because they are so adaptable. You can use them for any topic, you can organize students into groups, pairs, or individually, and you can use a computer lab or rotate your students through stations, therefore only using a handful of laptops or iPads if that’s all you have access to. These are great activities to explore content learning, problem solving and thinking and inquiry skills.
Start with the learning outcome
Creating the WebQuest
Organize your student instructions (handout) as follows: introduction, task, process, resources, assessment
