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.
Even without the inclusion of the power point, the webquest allows for some great comparisons and classroom discussion and follow-up with the Venn Diagrams or a writing activity.
Thank you for your purchase and positive feedback.
