Got WebQuests?One way I provide choice in my classroom is allowing my students to choose topics that they'd like to learn more about. Having a variety of engaging webquest topics helps inspire students to read and research using targeted keywords. This has proven to be a very useful tool in improving research skills, informational reading skills, and understanding questions. Students are usually not directed to a specific website to find information. They must use their internet search skills and scan and find relevant information.
I keep a folder containing about 10 different webquests that students use to make their choice. I add new topics every week, so they have a variety of choices. I also ask them what topics they are interested in, and create new webquests based on their opinions. They really love learning about topics they get to choose!
To see a variety of topics, check out my webquest bundle below. Let me know if you have comments or questions about these activities!
