This WebQuest can be modified to use in any grade level. I used this WebQuest in my computer classes for grades 2-6. This WebQuest is designed for students who are familiar working in Microsoft Excel. It focuses on getting more experience entering in formulas, adjusting column widths, changing font and font size, and entering in numbers. This WebQuest is also designed to provide great practice in working with numbers and budgets.
