John Brown Webquest
Students will gain basic knowledge about John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry by completing an internet-based worksheet. The John Brown Webquest uses an amazing virtual museum website by Smithsonian National Museum of American History. The website allows students view historical artifacts and gives a basic overview of the John Brown’s actions in Kansas and Virginia.
(Click on Civil War) The focus of the webquest is the section on John Brown
The webquest contains forty questions and an answer sheet is included for the teacher.
This webquest takes about 30 minutes for most of my students to complete. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. This assignment is also a great homework activity.
