WebQuest for 4th Graders
Deserts have unique geological features and are an important
part of the world, as they exist on all continents. As humans, we
have a significant impact on our environment. On the other hand,
the environment causes all living things to adapt. In this project
you will be working in groups to explore desert animals, plants, and peoples.
You will become an expert in a specific area of desert research.
You will be exploring and researching many different resources including
the Internet to become very knowledgeable in your area of expertise.
You will be exploring how your specific area adapts to the difficult conditions
that exist in the desert. With your expertise you will be able to
become part of a larger research group. In this group, you will
research and learn how your area of expertise reacts and interacts with
the other areas in the desert environment. As a group you will be
constructing a Virtual Desert Museum to help others understand the aspects
of adaptations in the desert environment.
