This webquest is designed to give financial accounting students hands on learning experience by putting them in a situation where they would act as a financial accountant. Students were to go through the accounting cycle by preparing certain documents and financial statements.
I would recommend that this project be assigned after students are familiar with the accounting cycle. This project could also be given as a final exam. When completing this project, students will be able to think abstractly. They will also be able to think on a professional level and learn some valuable computer skills by using Excel. Students will have fun using their math skills and computer skills.
Students will need a week to complete the project. They will need to use computers that are equipped with Excel.
The websites are external websites that are very helpful. The Accounting Textbook is also a great source for the students to use in order to complete this project.
