PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This webquest allows students to independently engage in a project-based learning activity. Students become paleontologists to answer the following question: What information can we learn from fossils about the past, present, and future? Through self-guided interactive activities, students work with a partner to learn about fossils, eventually writing a grant proposal to request funding for further research. Five days of activities are included, not including the time it may take students to complete the culminating task, a grant request summarizing what they've learned and persuading a company to fund their research. However, depending on your students, the activities could take more or less time. Two separate rubrics are included for this project - one for the writing itself, and one for completion of the overall webquest. The file is sent as a Power Point, to allow you to edit the rubric, add additional links, or make other changes you may feel are necessary for your students. All of the links are live and active, as of 4/7/15. I hope your "paleontologists" enjoy the webquest!
