This webquest was designed to teach middle school students. It can be adapted to any middle school science curriculum. Following are some tips which we hope you find helpful:
Alternatives to This Webquest:
Access PA, a database of Pennsylvania libraries.
- If Hyperstudio and PowerPoint are not available, the teams can present their findings supplemented by posters (with pictures) to the town council, the town council being the rest of the class.
- As a bonus, a contest could be created in which the students rename the town of Pulootsville. The name should reflect a "cleaner" enviornment.
- For resources available in your own library or community library, use
