I use this webquest with grade 7 students at the beginning of our (modified) Shakespeare Unit. It gives the kids a little bit of background. I have checked the links, and all are working as of January 27, 2011 but I can't guarantee they will remain so. I have gone through the information on the sites, and for the most part it looks sound, but again, I can't guarantee it's all correct. These sites are largely unregulated. The reason I included them is because the content is easily accessible for grade 7 and covers the necessary content areas.
