I use this webquest with my 7th grade Language Arts students when we are reading "A Long Walk to Water". However, I think that it could easily be used in a Social Studies or Humanities class as well. The webquest engages students to think about how much water they use on a daily basis via a water usage calculator. Then, students learn about indirect water and how much water it takes to produce common foods. It also includes an informational text about the water crisis in Sudan. Finally, there is a short slide show about water scarcity in Ethiopia. The closing activity asks the students to write a thoughtful response in which they reflect on their access to water versus people in certain parts of Africa. Every link in the webquest is accompanied by text-based questions.
