Grade Level: Grade 7

Keywords: extinct animals, saving energy, environment, pollution, recycling

 

Our planet is getting sick because of pollution, cutting of trees, people not recycling, excessive use of energy sources. As a result, some animals went extinct, climate change is more noticeable, and the weather is becoming more unpredictable. Because of these we need to take actions to save our planet! Save our Mother Earth, our home.

Task

Imagine you are the Science Class President. You are tasked by the teacher to make a brochure about climate change causes and effects and how these will affect our planet and us. This brochure should raise awareness about our goal, "Saving Mother Earth". This brochure should invite other people to take action, too! You may want to add pictures, graphs, tables, and other graphics to make your brochure engaging and fun to read. Make the brochure understandable (in layman's words).

A WebQuest is an interactive lesson where students perform various tasks through guided research to create an end result. Teachers can complete the WebQuest to learn how to develop their own WebQuest for student activities.

Teacher Introduction

 Why WebQuests?

WebQuests are a great way to keep students actively engaged.

Guided research can help students stay on track and expedite their research.

The WebQuest process includes the following:

  • The Introduction orients students and captures their interest.
  • The Task describes the activity's end product.
  • The Process explains strategies students should use to complete the task.
  • The Resources are the Web sites students will use to complete the task.
  • The Evaluation measures the results of the activity.
  • The Conclusion sums up the activity and encourages students to reflect on its process and results. (Starr, 2000).
