This is a WebQuest for the Official European Union website. Students will use any technology available with Internet and navigate the European Union website to find the missing information.
The WebQuest gives an overview of the European Union including some dates and country members, money in the European Union, and a larger portion on the history of the European Union from its creation to today.
The questions go in order on the WebQuest as the students see it online. They are easy to fill in with word-for-word sentences taken directly from the website. This is great for students with disabilities or students who struggle with reading and comprehension.
Lastly, my 8th grade students from the time they start the WebQuest to when they finish (not including explanation on how to get to website or the time to log into technology) takes around 20 minutes. Depending on technology, etc. it takes roughly 30-40 minutes total.
