In this lesson, students learn interesting facts about the invention of three media sources: radio, television, and the Internet as they complete several projects including a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to answer questions about each of the topics. A complete answer key is provided for the WebQuests for easy grading, along with resources for both teachers and students. The student questions are included in both a print version and a digital (editable) version to make it easy for students to complete the lesson digitally or on paper. Also included with this lesson is an editable acrostic puzzle that can be printed for students or completed on the computer (file provided in MS Word which can be opened in Google Docs if you prefer). It includes two versions of the puzzle for differentiation and an answer key, which is perfect for early finishers or as a part of the lesson. As a bonus, with this bundle an additional word search puzzle is included that covers all three topics (includes an answer key).
This lesson is intended to be an introduction to the topics and was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in high school as well. This lesson could be used in a history or technology class and is also a great lesson to leave for a substitute teacher!
