Teacher Page


This web quest will be a great tool in your classroom if you want a fun innovative way for students to get more in-depth knowledge on the holocaust and it will show students how War can make anyone scared which caused the U.S. to also have essentially concentration camps for Japanese Americans.

This Web Quest could take anywhere from 4-7 days depending on how long the class schedules at your school go. My school has block schedule's so the students have more time with me.
If you would like to use this Web Quest in the classroom have groups picked out so that the students with disabilities or language learners can work with students who can help them understand the material. Also make it fun for all students by giving them the opportunities to choose what they want to create. This will help make it so you can differentiate the lesson so that it fits the students needs. Only have a rough outline of what you want the project to look like let them fill in the blanks.
