This is a part of the full Past IS Present WebQuest. This Freebie is the "Background for Everyone" phase where all students learn basic information before exploring more complex topics.
This is a simple knowledge acquisition activity where students are given 12 questions and one Internet site to get the answers. Many people in the TpT community refer to these as WebQuests so I'll do that here. This Freebie Quiz includes the answer key.
I encourage you to check out the Video Introductions and MindMapping activity which is the next step in the real WebQuest and even consider engaging your students in real, rich and relevant learning and community action with the scaffolded full Past IS Present WebQuest.
