Product Description
King Arthur Research Webquest

This 2-3 day short term research project teaches students background information on the legend of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, and life during the Medieval Age.

Students work in teams of four to complete a King Arthur Webquest and create collaboratively a slide presentation based on what they’ve learned.

Group members assume one of the following roles during their research:

Investigator, Adventurer, Traveler, or Teacher.

Each member has his/her own unique websites to explore all bookmarked on an easily accessible google site. With this purchase, teachers and students will be provided with a link to a King Arthur Webquest Google Site that contains a project description, separate webpage for each group member, student note-taking and source citation handout, and all digital website and research resource links.

No sign in is needed for project access! No more repeat explanations of project requirements or how their research presentation will be graded. All materials are uploaded and linked to the project research page for students to reference when needed!

Each group member is provided with guiding research suggestions to help with note-taking and to give the research process more structure if needed.

All materials (included website research links) are also included as pdf printables and Google Drive links.

This project can easily be modified for cooperative research pairs or individual student research. Teachers will direct students to choose two of the group roles instead of 4 and examine the research sites listed under each.
The Google Site created for this project is structured, attractive, whimsical, and engaging. Students will love the animated medieval images present on each research page!

This research project can be used with 6th-12th graders and is beneficial for any historical study of the middle ages, ELA legend literature units, and as an introduction to Freak the Mighty.

Included with this purchase are the following resources:

King Arthur Webquest Google Site with Project Information and Resource Links;

King Arthur Slide Presentation Project Sheet;

MLA 8th Edition Website Citation Sheet with Examples;

Student Note-Taking Handout;

Teacher’s Grading Rubric

Update: This project has been updated for Google Drive and includes a vibrant, modern project page created with the New Google Sites!
