Students will learn about industrialization in the Pacific Northwest by completing a webquest on the commercial fishing of salmon during the 1800s and early 1900s.
This webquest uses a very student friendly website that covers the following big ideas:
Importance of the Columbia River
Importance of Salmon
Development of the Salmon Fishing Industry in Washington and Alaska
Labor and Immigration related to Salmon Industry (Asian and Scandinavian)
Impact of the Salmon Industry on Native Americans
The webquest contains 22 questions and is a great way to introduce or to have your students learn more about the history of the Pacific Northwest. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest will take most students 10 to 30 minutes to complete depending on age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
