This activity uses several reputable websites, including a fun virtual pond dip, to send students on a journey into the microscopic world. Students learn by using clues in the worksheet to find the different virtual microbes.
I created this webquest to prepare my students for a lab on microscopic pond organisms. Also, I’ve designed it to reinforce their knowledge of classification and, specifically, the Protista kingdom.
While this is great preparation for a pond microorganism lab it can just as well be a stand-alone assignment.
