Students will learn about the difficulties of building the Panama Canal through an internet-based worksheet. The Panama Canal Webquest uses a great website that allows students view a timeline and guides students through an interactive map of the Panama Canal.
Click here to view the website.
The webquest contains 36 questions and is a great way to introduce or review the Panama Canal. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students 30 to 50 minutes to finish. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.
