This web quest uses QR codes to direct students to webpages that contain the information they need to answer a variety of questions such as finding out the taxonomic classification of the silk worm, investigating how silk worms breathe, and drawing and labeling a diagram. Web quests are a good way to introduce students to a topic, as they will need to skim read in order to find the answers which results in broader incidental learning about the topic.
Great as a science comprehension activity, to use alongside a unit about life cyles, animal adaptions, or primary industries.
Contains links to a wide range of resources that can be used at the teacher's discretion.
Contains a full colour printable poster of the silk worm life cycle, and BLM versions with various levels of interactivity, for instance, drawing and labeling each stage, drawing each stage (already labeled), and colouring the page. Highly differentiated, containing scaffolded versions for use with students with a learning disability, as well as suggestions for extension.
