Webquests and More Webquests

compiled by Julie Coiro
Listed below is a compilation of Internet websites I've found that index webquests used in schools. Some links contain just a few webquests and others contain huge numbers of them categorized by grade level, content area or topic. Spend a while here exploring some of the many ways that teachers like you have begun to share their lessons and projects online so that others do not need to reinvent the wheel. Read a few webquests carefully to examine how well they would fit into the standards you are expected to cover and try adapting a few to better suit the needs and resources of your students in your classroom. Have fun!
