In this 3-page, fully editable .docx file are detailed instructions for a WebQuest on different animal phyla. Rubric included.
Grade levels suggested - middle and high school biology/science classes.
Students are assigned to work in small groups, and each group is then assigned one of seven animal phyla to research on their WebQuest. The links are provided on the handout, and they are all currently working. Students should be able to get enough information from these web resources, but are encouraged to research some more.
Students then, either outside of class or during another class period, work on a museum exhibit with their small group. The details are outlined in the handout. Students are supposed to teach their fellow classmates about their phylum and its members through a creative museum display. These physical displays will be on display throughout the classroom and the students will present them following their creation.
Full, detailed rubric included!
I hope your class has fun with this one, let me know how it works out!
Thanks for viewing!
