The Gandhi Timeline Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC that allows students to get a better understanding of the importance and life of Gandhi. Indian independence and civil rights are also covered in this webquest. This webquest is also great at helping students better understand the difficulties Gandhi had to overcome to be the voice of the Indian independence movement. The webquest is very easy to follow for students in grades 7-12. Click on the link below to visit the website:

The webquest contains 48 questions and an answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest takes most students at least 30 to 50 minutes to complete depending on their age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
Important! The website has one sexual reference in it. Depending on the age of your students and the school you teach at, you might want to avoid using this webquest or have a brief talk with your students that Gandhi married at thirteen. (Otherwise the website is an amazing secondary source)
