Lesson PlanKindergarten teacher Debbie Zakowski of Captain Hunt School in Central Falls, Rhode Island, created the Pet Detective WebQuest for her students. In this activity, students click on selected Web links and answer questions about the material they encounter. The WebQuest is designed to be used with small groups of students but can easily be adapted for whole group instruction.
NOTE: Some of the links in this WebQuest no longer work, but enough of them function to make this a useful student activity.
Students share something they learned from the WebQuest with a partner. Assessment is achieved through teacher observation during discussions as the students work.
