Captain Cook Exploration Webquest uses three great websites that allows students to get a better understanding of the life and impact of Captain Cook had through his exploration of the Pacific during the 1700s. The webquest focuses on Captain Cook’s early life, his ships, and achievements in exploration of the Pacific Ocean. The webquest is very easy to follow for students in grades 4-12.
