Webquests are great resources to use in the classroom because they give the student the freedom to explore the internet on their own finding information pertaining to your lesson, while still giving you control over the websites they use to ensure their safety and appropriateness.
This webquest is designed to help students explore the internet in search of information based on DETERMINING DISCOUNTS AND SALES PRICE.
This webuest involves 1 recommended website for the students to use to help them find the information laid out on the worksheet. Depending on your class you may set up the websites ahead of time, or have them type in the websites themselves.
The worksheet is aligned perfectly with the interactive events of the website. Their task is to travel to a toy store and purchase the toys of their own desire. They must figure out the final cost of their purchase than the discounted price when given a specific discount rate.
The website is wonderful because it allows students to move at their own pace. If they get stuck, it helps them along.
