This web quest offers guided practice for students to research on the Internet and evaluate sites. Students review given sites and research facts to determine if the information is fact or fiction. For a final project, students create a creature and use creative writing skills to write a hoax about the creature. A KWL chart, web site rating, final project rubric, and a tutorial for the final project are included. This site requires Adobe Reader for some pages. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

In the Classroom

This activity would work well for individual or pairs of students in a lab or on laptops. Before you assign a research project on your middle school team, take the time to work through this webquest. Every student on the team will benefit when it comes time to do research in ANY subject. Perhaps you can "divvy up" the webquest tasks and time across multiple subjects so no one class needs spend too long on this foundation experience.
