A WebQuest for Grades 9-12


This WebQuest is designed for use during Hispanic Heritage Month and year round to make students aware of the rich heritage Hispanic residents of the United States have brought to their adopted country.



The tasks in this Web-based activity address national standards in U.S. History, World History, Fine Arts, and Technology.


National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the United States from September 15 through October 15. The month long celebration of Hispanic history, culture, people, and more began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week; it was expanded to a month in 1989. Hispanic Heritage Month includes September 15 -- Independence Day in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua; September 16 -- Independence Day in Mexico; and October 12 -- El Dia de las Raza or the Day of the Race in Mexico and Latin America.
