What is a Web Quest?
- A WebQuest is an inquiry-based learning activity where most or all of the information used by students is found online. The teacher usually has to do some work by uploading lesson plans and information online and providing links necessary to complete the quest. From this information, the student is able to focus on the material rather than spend time looking for it. Traditionally, WebQuests are made up of five parts, (Introduction, Task, Process, Evaluation and Conclusion) which promotes critical thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

The early years of the colony were nearly a total disaster.
