Hello teachers! This webquest was created for students to learn about elephant life. The main question students have to answer is whether or not elephants should live in captivity or in the wild/a sanctuary.
This webquest should be completed in groups of 3 or 4 students and should only take about an hour or less to complete. Extra time will be needed for completion of the final presentation.
Once your students finish their projects, you can choose to submit them to the Global Sanctuary for Elephants by sending them to P.O. Box 2426 Brentwood, TN 37024 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org! Good luck on your journey and I hope you enjoy this Webquest as much as I did!
