A WebQuest is an inquiry-based activity. Students search the Internet for relevant information. Webquests are learner-centered. Instead of passively taking notes, students explore, investigate, and discover information for themselves.

A quality WebQuest consists of the following:

  • Introduction - hook students with a curious question, catchy song, or attractive photograph.
  • Goal - tell students what they are expected to learn and be able to do
  • Procss - provide students with a structure for organizing information to achieve their goal
  • Resources - list the links to helpful and informative websites that will help students reach their goal
  • Evaluation - provide a rubric that describes how student performance will be measured
  • Conclusion - summarize what students have learned and encourage reflection
