The purpose of this Web quest is to teach students about maps, map keys and symbols. Students are asked to find the route they take from school to get to their home and show the path taken on a map. Instead of using countless papers to map their route out, the goal is to integrate the new technologies into this lesson such as Map Quest. Along with using these new websites, students are required to use digital cameras to take pictures of familiar landmarks they encounter on their way home. Visual-Spatial intelligence will be addressed by having pupils use mental images and remembering maps in their head. This type of intelligence requires children to remember routes and their natural or man-made landmarks they took pictures of and where they fit in along the route. Along with this, the Interpersonal intelligence will be addressed. Students will need to use this intelligence to work and collaborate with one another to help put the entire project together. This will help children to make connections and cooperate with their fellow classmates not just during the duration of the project but they would also retain their connections throughout the school year.
