Welcome: The Southwest Region
Description: Get ready to explore the smallest portion of our big backyard! This WebQuest will allow you to explore the Southwest region of the United States. You will break up into collaborative groups to work with a top secret mission being done by "T. Travel Agency," which has hired the class to assist in helping George Washington decide why he should visit the southwest during his vacation. It is the groups' goal to try and persuade our first president to stay in the Southwest region while he is visiting from the past. Whichever group puts together the best region proposal will become special members of the T. Travel Agency assisting with future time travel trips and will also get to vacation anywhere in the past. Fasten your seatbelts - let's explore our country!
