What is a WebQuest?
  “A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which
  most or all of the information used by learners is drawn
  from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners'
  time well, to focus on using information rather than
  looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the
  levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model
  was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State
  University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March, and was
  outlined then in Some Thoughts About WebQuests.”

WebQuest Uses
 WebQuests work best with open-ended lessons,
 those that invite creativity and problem-solving,
 possibly with more than one solution. They can
 address open-ended questions like:
   What should be done to protect America's coral reefs?

   What kinds of people were most likely to survive the
   sinking of the Titanic? Why?

   What was it like to live during the American Gold Rush?

   What would Mark Twain think about the lives that children
   live today?
 Set the stage and provide background.
 Prepare and “hook” the students.
 Introduce the Big Question or Guiding
 Question that the whole WebQuest is
 centered around.

 going to do - specifically, the culminating
 performance or product that drives all of the
 learning activities.
   Doable, interesting, and authentic.
   Describe crisply and clearly what the end result
   of the learners' activities will be. Don't list the
   steps that students will go through to get to the
   end point. That belongs in the Process section.

Sample Conclusion
A City in Space (Science/Technology/9-12)
Congratulations! You have successfully completed your first
    training mission as a colonist on the International Space
In this training you learned about the advances in technology
    of space construction and transportation. You learned about
    what it takes to live and work in space while performing
    research on the Internet. You also learned to effectively
    present your research using graphic organizers and desktop
    presentation software.
We appreciate your effort . If you think of any topics for
    research regarding the International Space Station that we
    might use for future colonists, please let us know.
