Students will gain basic knowledge about Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Mark Twain Webquest uses a great website created by the Missouri Historical Society. The website allows students to explore the key events of Mark Twain's life during the 1800s and early 1900s in a very kid friendly website. The following website is used:
The webquest contains 32 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about Mark Twain and the problems he overcame. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest will take most students 20 to 40 minutes to complete. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 4-9. If you use this webquest at the upper high school levels it will only provide basic background information about Mark Twain. I suggest checking out the website before making your decision to buy this webquest.
