The Nelson Mandela Timeline Webquest uses a great website created by the BBC that allows students to get a better understanding of the importance and life of Nelson Mandela. Apartheid and civil rights are also covered in this webquest. This webquest is also great at helping students better understand the difficulties Mandela had to overcome to be the voice of the ANC and become the President of South Africa. The webquest is very easy to follow for students in grades 6-12. Click on the link below to visit the website:

The webquest contains 54 questions and an answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest takes most students at least 30 to 60 minutes to complete depending on their age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
