This webquest was created for the Australian classroom, but could be implemented in any classroom. My target audience was a class of year 1 and 2 students who are identified to be gifted.
When grouping students, I chose a group leader who demonstrates confidence and has some technical computer skill. But of course, you could try friendship groups or other groupings.
I chose to focus on teamwork, computer, research and presentation skill sets through this webquest. The Essential Learning Achievements (ELAs) for this unit are:
ELA 23 The student understands world events and issues
ELA 11 The student critically interprets and creates texts
ELA 3 The student makes considered decisions
ELA 5 The student contributes to group effectiveness
ELA 6 The student uses Information and Communication Technologies effectively
