How to use a WebQuest?

How to use a WebQuest?

There are 20 different web quests. The web quests have five different themes
· Food and Drink
· Transportation
· Buildings and Grounds
· Social
· Consumption

Each theme contains five web quests. The theme Food for instance consists of the web quests:
- Where does my food come from?
- What do I really eat?
- Who made it?
- Do my friends eat the same as me?
- How is it packaged?

Each theme starts with a Real Life Situation, a small story introducing all the web quests within the theme.

Each web quest has the same structure:

  • Introduction: Introduction into the specific web quest to capture the pupils’ interest.
  • Task: Short explanation of what the pupil is going to do in this web quest.
  • Activities: Each web quest has at least three different activities. Pupils have to find information on the internet, read the information and process the information in a small report, poster, drawing or presentation. Each web quest has one ‘Learning outside the classroom’ activity in which pupils have to interview people or do an investigation at home, at school or in the neighborhood.
  • Reflection: Simple questions help pupils reflect on what they have learnt and how it can be applied.
  • Conclusion: The web quest ends with some final words and often a question for the pupil to reflect on the theme.
  • Teacher notes: The teacher notes provide the teacher with information about each web quest. For an optimal use of the web quest, we advise that the teacher reads this information before the pupils start doing a web quest.

Ask pupils to fill in the feedback form after doing a web quest. This will provide us with information about each web quest.
