Inside Out & Back Again WEBQUEST allows students to gather background knowledge about Vietnam in an interesting way.
This quest, in preparation for reading the novel by Thanhha Lai, gives students appropriate web resources (videos and websites) with which to search; it also offers them opportunities to express knowledge in drawings as well as in writing.
The quest is divided into four categories for easy and attractive access: Geography, History, Culture, and Language; it can be completed in groups or individually. And, yes, you can check their work with a provided key!
