This WebQuest has three phases:

  1. World Holidays

    • The first step is to learn as much as you can about how we honor people with holidays.
    • Note: your team will have a folder to organize your materials. Keep everything you do!
    • You will be turning this folder in at the end of the project.
  2. Choosing an Explorer

    • The next step is to identify one explorer who is worthy of being honored with a new holiday
    • Then you will learn about that person so you can design an appropriate celebration.
  3. Developing Your Presentation

    • The last step is to create a presentation for a committee of state legislators to persuade them that your plan for a new holiday should be adopted.
    • The role of the committee will be played by a group of teachers and students from our class.
