Roald Dahl is a well beloved author and this web quest is a great tool to use to usher students into his delightfully creative and wonderful realm! With this activity, students will be able to research aspects of Dahl's life and discover what helped nurture his creativity. After the students find key details of Dahl’s life, plus a few other facts that they find of particular interest, they play the author themselves and apply their learning by creating a three paragraph biography.
Teaching kept simple!
