PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle purchase is for 10 various webquest / Internet assignments. These assignments are perfect for in-school computer lab work or to be assigned as homework. The included work has been designed for Grades 6th – 8th but some minor changes should make it perfect for older or younger students as needed.

Included with this bundle package are the following assignments:

1) SCIENCE CAREERS WEBQUEST & PUZZLE
-Science Career Webquest (listing 31 careers) - 2 variations
-Vocabulary Puzzle Grid
Students are tasked to choose several careers from a chosen list and do quick research of how the career connects to science and how the career benefits society. The additional puzzle includes all 31 careers.
This assignment is perfect to improve class discussions, sharing, open-ended writing, and comparing/contrasting.

2) HUMAN BODY INTERNET SCAVENGER HUNT
This is a 20-question Internet scavenger hunt focusing on all aspects of the human body. It's great to use as review, as an introduction to a unit, and provides excellent material for classroom discussion.

3) FAMOUS SCIENTISTS WEBQUEST & PUZZLE
Students are provided a list of famous scientists and are tasked with doing basic research on these famous individuals. Items researched include: year of birth, country of birth, facts on their life, and primary contribution they made to the field of science. This is the perfect beginning point for either a longer research paper or a focused writing assignment.
Also included is a puzzle sheet on famous scientists and famous inventions.

4) EARTH VOCABULARY WEBQUEST-CROSSWORD
This webquest-crossword puzzle challenges students to identify or research 50 different vocabulary terms based on the provided definitions.
The focus of this assignment is on EARTH (works especially good around Earth Day, April 22). Examples of some answers included are: atmosphere, lithosphere, continents, oceans, pollution, mantle, volcano, ecology, latitude, erosion, and 40 others.
Students love webquests and worksheets that feel more like a game so this assignment combines them for the best of both worlds. It's great to use as homework or extra credit as well! *Answer Key Provided*

5) 8 PLANETS WEBQUEST
This webquest is a great addition to any unit focusing on Space and Planets. The webquest can be completed at one website www.space-facts.com which also makes it easy to assign for homework.
In total there are 50-questions with an even assortment of questions for all eight planets in the Milky Way Galaxy (sorry Pluto!). Questions focus on: rotation, orbit, temperature, spacecraft exploration, moons, and plenty more.

6) WEATHER CONDITIONS CHART WEBQUEST
This is a great webquest / Internet assignment to use near the beginning of any unit focusing on weather (works good using school technology or for homework).
FRONT SIDE - Students will go to the website www.weather.gov and complete a chart identifying current temperature and weather details for 17 U.S. cities. Some of the cities are identified and others are for student choice. The chart can be easily modified in minutes to make any changes you want. Because of the nature of the assignment, the chart will change every day much like the weather changes so an answer key will also need to be filled out by a teacher the day of the assignment.
BACK SIDE - Students will go to the website www.weatherforyou.com/history/ to identify three significant weather/disaster events that occurred on this date in history. Students will then change the date to their birthdate to find what weather events occurred at that time.
This is a quick and fun assignment that most students really enjoy since it shows them a wide range of current weather in our country and gives them a historical look at weather events. Great for discussion the following day.

7) WEATHER VOCABULARY WEBQUEST CROSSWORD
This webquest-crossword puzzle Challenges students to identify or research 40 different vocabulary terms based on the provided definitions.
The focus of this assignment is WEATHER. Examples of some of the words included are: El Nino, humidity, Fujita Scale, monsoon, troposphere, climate, smog, cirrus cloud, meteorologist, anemometer, and 30 others.
Students love webquests and worksheets that feel more like a game so this assignment combines them for the best of both worlds. It's great to use as homework or extra credit as well! *Answer Key Provided*

8) CRYPTOZOOLOGY WEBQUEST WITH POWER POINT RUBRIC
Students love this webquest (especially those who watch shows like Finding Bigfoot, Monster Quest, or who enjoy Urban Legends). I use this as an introduction to the area of Cryptozoology and how scientists are constantly searching for new species or attempting to debunk fake claims.
The webquest tasks students with finding five cryptids that have been researched by scientists. Students need to identify dates, claims, and "evidence" that was found of the cryptid. A Venn Diagram is included for students to either use to compare/contrast two of their cryptids or to partner work.
Then students will design a 10-slide power point / Prezi of their researched Cryptids.

9) SPEED WEBQUEST AND PROBLEMS
Included with this assignment are two separate worksheets that focus on the concept of SPEED and how it is calculated. Both sheets work perfectly as homework, extra credit, or quick classroom assignments.
1 - SPEED WEBQUEST - various question relating to the concept of speed for students to research on the Internet including: fastest ten Olympic 100m runners, top 10 fastest land animals, and top speeds achieved by various technology.
2 - SPEED PROBLEMS - a follow-up to the webquest with a variety of quick calculation problems to determine speed of Olympic runners, animals, NASCAR, and Indy. These problems are quick to solve but lend themselves to numerous classroom discussions and comparisons as you work through a unit focusing on Motion & Energy (or could be incorporated with Math classes).

10) HUMAN BODY NERVOUS SYSTEM WEBQUEST & WORDSEARCH
This assignment is perfect for homework, extra credit, or a quick in-class Internet assignment.
On the front side is a short webquest where 24 sentences are provided and students must identify which key vocabulary term of the human nervous system is being described.
The back side is a 20 word nervous system wordsearch.


Each assignment is provided as an MS-Word document to make modifying easy to fit the needs of your students.
