Product Description
This webquest gives students an introduction into the genres of Utopia, Dystopia and Science Fiction. This task will give students an understanding of those aforementioned terms as well as helping them connect those ideas to books and movies that they may have read. The webquest also tasks students to read several chunks of informational text.

A majority of the questions have a link embedded that takes the student to the source that will help them in finding an appropriate response. Several of the questions deal with the concepts of rules within a society, challenging students to think about if and why people need rules.

Lastly, this piece ends with a short writing assignment which asks students to make a thought-out prediction of what the world may look like in 100 years.

I used this with my 7th grade class as an intro for the novel "The Giver", but I could easily see this same webquest being used as pre-reading material for books like "The Hunger Games", "1984", "Animal Farm" and "Fahrenheit 451".
