This WebQuest was designed to go along with a social studies unit on the life of Charles Lindbergh. Growing up and living in Lindbergh's boyhood town of Little Falls, Minnesota made me realize what a great teaching tool his life could be to elementary students. This WebQuest allows students to research (by using timelines and graphic organizers) different eras in his life.
