Webquests are a great way to focus your Internet searches. They focus on a topic, and then provide you with tasks and links that help you to complete them. If you type “webquests” in the Google search box, you will find at least other useful ones.
2 Note about Links
The Internet is a wonderful aid for research and many people spend a lot of time developing worksheets for students. Often they provide links that worked the day they completed them, but websites change and sometimes links do not work at a later date. If the link you want does not work, try typing a key word in a search box, and you will find other links that are just as useful. You can access some of the urls by clicking on the links embedded in the webquest pages.

4 Making your Own Webquests
If these webquests are not suitable for your studies, you can make up your own ones, following the format of the ones in this file.
5 Using with Students
The webquest can be introduced in class, and the students can find answers in their own time. This file works best if it is accessed by the students from computers, rather than reading paper copies, as the links are embedded in the file. The file can be sent as an attachment to the students in each teacher’s section. The students can work on the topics in small groups, and then present their findings at the end of semester with group presentations, using PowerPoint.
