Product Description
Students will gain basic knowledge about Christopher Columbus by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Columbus Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC. The website allows students to explore the key events of Columbus’s life and European exploration in a very kid friendly website. Check out the website at:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/famouspeople/christopher_columbus/

The webquest contains 60 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about key events in the life of Columbus. 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 Columbus. I suggest checking out the website before making your decision to buy this webquest.
