WebQuests are usually a group activity.
Often they are designed to have 3 to 5 students per group, with the students working cooperatively on the task. Usually the groups work on different aspects of the task.

WebQuests often include role-playing.
By incorporating role-playing, students learn to look at issues from multiple perspectives. Each group could represent a role; or each student in a group could represent a role and become an expert on a particular topic. The group then synthesizes the information they find and creates a product that demonstrates their learning.

WebQuests can be single discipline or interdisciplinary.
WebQuest lessons can just focus on one subject, but they can easily cover multiple subject areas.
