We will be working on a webquest today, available at http://www.webquest.org called A
Home on Ganymede. You can find it if you scroll down the centre of the webpage.
The webquest has many different components. We will be working on Steps 1-3 of the
process in class. This will entail creating departments for each of you to be in charge of,
learning about Ganymede and Space Travel, and gaining specific information for your
department. Step 4 (creating a presentation of your department’s priorities for your fellow
classmates) will be your homework assignment. Keep in mind that the eventual goal of
this webquest is to come up with a successful solution to colonize Ganymede so your
departmental analysis should lead to possible solutions.
The presentation should be in Power Point Format with 8-12 slides (10 - 15 minute
presentation maximum). You must include your presentation notes with the power point
slides. You can hand in either a copy of your slides and notes (which can be printed out
from the program), or the .ppt file which contains the information can be e-mailed to the
