Students will gain basic knowledge about Charles Dickens by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Charles Dickens Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC. The website allows students to explore the key events of Charles Dickens life during the Victorian Age in a very kid friendly website.
The webquest contains 40 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about Charles Dickens and English life during the 1800s. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest will take most students 30 to 50 minutes to complete. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 4-8. If you use this webquest at the high school level it will only provide basic background information about Charles Dickens. I suggest checking out the website before making your decision to buy this webquest.
