It’s Wednesday, June 18, 2014, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)
When you get to the site you will see an introduction, some information on how to get the best use out of WebQuests, and a menu of WebQuests by grade level from K-12. All of the WebQuests are listed according to the literature/book/author used as a theme for the Quest. For example:
*K-2 – Enjoy WebQuests using books such as “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do You See?,” or a theme about studying insects with Eric Carle.
*4-6 – Go on WebQuests based on books such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Harry Potter,” “Johnny Tremain,” and “Hatchet.”
*Middle Schoolers – Try a WebQuest based on books by Jack London, Roald Dahl, Anne Frank, Avi, and Harper Lee.
*High School Students – Try your hand at WebQuests themed around “Beowulf,” “The Crucible,” “Farenheit 451,” “Little Women,” and “The Odyssey.”
Click on any one to begin your WebQuest. Do read the advice at this site about how to adapt WebQuests to suit your student’s interests and abilities. They also explain how to deal with the occasional dead link that you may find in a quest.
This is a great way to use technology to enhance any study of literature.
