This WebQuest was designed for a standard fifth-grade general music cause and can be adapted for any grade level. Time management may come into play while completing this project. If taking too long, my advice is to change it from individual students completing the project, to pairing them up, or even small groups. This will cut down on the time and class periods spent in completing this project.
The standards listed are from the 2014 NAfME for fifth-grade general music. If adapting this WebQuest for other grade levels, please consult your state and national standards.
