This is a cooperative learning webquest
that I created for my 5th grade class. I group the students into groups of four, and pre-determine which job (zoologist, botanist, meteorologist, or geologist)
they will have. Some jobs are easier to gather information for than others. I also have an extra floater position (publicist) for a student, if my classroom numbers aren’t quite divisible by four. Then I put all seven of the included ecosystems
in a hat and the leader from each group will pick from it. Otherwise, I may end up with all Rainforest research projects! I have used this webquest for a couple of years now and my students ♥ it!!
I keep it on my class website during the project period, so that the students can use the drop down menus and work on their group research anytime they want.
♦ 7 featured ecosystems
(taiga, tropical rainforest, estuaries, desert, temperate forest, fresh water, ocean marine)
♦ 40 video clip and web site links
(all url's included)
♦ 4 recording fact sheets
(one for each job)
♦ one grading rubric
If you teach 4th, 5th, or 6th grade and need more resources, I have other great science and math packets you may be interested in.
Science Fair Ready!!
Human Body Systems
Fact Families, Factor T's, and Finding the GCF
