Weather Patterns Web Quest

I love webquests.  {Have you heard?}

Here is my newest webquest hot off the press...



Haven't used a Web-Quest before? 
 The students follow the directions of the packet to navigate websites 
and interactive activities, as well as complete the packet.

All YOU need to do is print the packet for each student...
 head on over to a computer lab (or use it as a station within your classroom...)
and the students will do the rest!

Like the Web-Quest above? 

Check out my other web quests on TpT too!


In my experience, the students really enjoy the web-quests.
(For younger students, I might recommend bookmarking the sites in advance to avoid typos in the URL...)


I'm looking for feedback.....
Do you use Web-quests?

Please comment and share any great websites, online activities, or Web Quests you have used!

I love your webquest! I use webquests all the time. Well, not so much in this very moment because somehow all our computers had to be taken to the district office for some kind of wipe/ rebooting/ rebuilding, but yes, I use them as often as possible. My kids love them. I can't wait to try this one out on my sixth graders. Do you teach any grades besides 6th? I teach 6, 7, 8 science to primarily at-risk kids in an "alternative school." I'm always looking for new ideas that don't involve grouping in much more than partners.

Hi Amy! Glad to hear you use them too, any topics you have found good sites for? As you can see, I am trying to gradually create more.....

Each year it changes, but this year I have 7th grade science (Our science curriculum just went spiral so I teach earth, life, and physical.), 6th grade inclusion math, 7th grade resource math.

I hear ya on the partners.

Web-quests?!?!?! Where have I been?
How do you design them exactly? I'd love more info/help on how to create one.

Since our middle schoolers are online all day anyway this sound like a fun thing to do with them!

Hi Mor! Thanks for filling me in on your giveaway!! I will enter :)

Web quests are awesome you should try them! First I just find a whole bunch of sites ( or just one if it's really good) relevant to the unit. The more interactive the better! Then I create a packet that walks the students through exploring the sites. I make it so that it highlights what I want them to know or be able to do....

The students seriously do love them... In fact, I even had some ask if they could stay after school to help me findsites to make our next one! ( so cute, right?)

I love using Webquests too. The site www.zunal.com is a great database for lots of webquests. There are some not so good choices, but some really excellent projects.

Thanks for sharing your resources.
