WebQuests on Westward Expansion

Objective:

Students will learn and conceptualize events that occurred during the Westward Expansion during the 19th Century. The students are to participate in Web-based activities in which they learn about a topic by collecting information, images, and insights from the Internet, and then "paste" them into a multimedia Scrapbook (a HyperStudio stack, Kid Pix slide show, PowerPoint presentation or a Claris HomePage project) to share their learning with other students.

 

Note to teacher:

Although these Web Quests are formulated for students to work on independently, the teacher needs to introduce them and monitor student progress.
