Product Description
The objective of this internet scavenger hunt is to familiarize my students with the information they can find about their representatives on both the state and national level.

The first section uses Congress.gov, and with the exception of one question, it wouldn't need to be adjusted for your state. The second section would have to be adjusted for your state and area--but the questions I asked can guide you as you personalize it for your students. Use your local representatives, and issues that matter to your state/town--and those will likely change year-to-year.

This worked as a perfect assignment when my students had a substitute teacher. It kept them engaged and directed, and it took approximately two days to complete in class.

I want my students to be active seekers of information--not just passive receptacles of the media, etc. This lesson helped direct them to the online resources that can help them to be responsible for their own information.
