I developed this webquest to go along with building background knowledge for Jon Krakauer's novel "Into Thin Air." This book is 1320 Lexile, and we are reading it in our gifted ELA class. In my class, I assigned this to them on classroom.google.com. They had to open the Google Doc and complete the questions online while they participated in the interactive site. Then, they had to click on the "turn it in" button for it to be delivered to my Google Drive. HOWEVER, it can be printed out and given to students to complete with a pencil as well. Glacier Works: Everest is a fantastic site, and it truly helped my students build knowledge before diving into a challenging book.
