This WebQuest is made in order to help your students develop a broader perspective on global education. The websites, resource, and presentation all lead to creating a strong classroom community where other cultures, countries, and people in different circumstances are better understood. Students are given an opportunity to better understand people who are different from them, and to take a moment to realize just how significant an education in American can be.

We would like to thank Dr. Deborah Dimmett for introducing us to WebQuests and inspiring us to think of schools outside of our own country. She is very passionate about providing relief to schools in Haiti and other countries around the world, which inspired us to base this WebQuest on that topic.
Throughout this WebQuest, we used images off of Google Images. The links for the websites that we included for students to explore are posted throughout the WebQuest.
We hope you enjoy this WebQuest! It is great for inspiring wonder in students and introducing them to different cultures and way of living that differ from their own.
