The webquest contains 45 questions and an answer key is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website links. I recommend using this activity as an introduction activity for a field trip to Fort Snelling or as an opportunity for students to further explore Minnesota history. The webquest will take most students at least 30 to 50 minutes to complete depending on age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
