This webquest comes with a worksheet and an answer key. Each link in the webquest points to information that your students need to complete the worksheet. Besides printing the worksheets, no other prep is needed to conduct this activity.
To provide additional flexibility, the webquest was also designed to be a standalone resource that can be relied on to support other activities (research projects, presentations, etc.) instead of, or in addition to, the worksheet questions.
Includes the following:
• Webquest: Although this webquest is focused mostly on Australia, it also addresses Australia’s larger region, Oceania. It includes physical geography and human geography, Australia’s history as a prison colony, the Aboriginal civil rights campaign, and the Great Barrier Reef. Websites include National Geographic, the National Museum of Australia, the Australian Government’s Great Barrier Reef Authority, and Sydney Living Museums. (PDF, 6 pages)
• Student worksheet (PDF, 17 short-answer questions, 3 pages)
