What Is This All About?
This WebQuest will give the students the opportunity to learn
about different forms of energy production. Students should also be able
to identify the benefits and risks of these different types of energy.
The WebQuest provides students with the opportunity to use the internet
and other resources to learn more about each of several energy sources.
What Grade Level Is This For?
The WebQuest was designed for students in high school chemistry
classes. Specifically, this was designed to compliment the ChemCom
curriculum. ChemCom is written by the American Chemical Society.
What Will Be Done?
The students are given a scenario that discusses how their
city is in need of more energy. It is then the students' responsibility
to investigate several energy options and then choose which one is best.
Specifically, each student and his or her group will:
investigate a energy source,
list the pros and cons of the energy source for the group,
participate in group discussions to determine the best energy
participate in group presentation to share which energy source
What Will Be Learned?
The students will learn several things during this activity
the pros and cons of several energy sources,
the ability to analyze an energy source for risks and benefits,
using the internet to research and,
group work skills.
