WHAT IS A WEBQUEST?
"A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. These can be created using various programs, including a simple word processing document that includes links to websites." (from Wikipedia) Here you'll find various web quests created by our classroom teachers and used in our classrooms.
