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
WebQuest lessons can just focus on one subject, but they can easily
cover multiple subject areas.
