As fourth graders, they have learned how diverse one country can be from another. This gave the children an opportunity to learn about another countries religion, cultural food, climate, and much more through their research. New Zealand and Czech Republic were chosen because they are two countries that are not as familiar to a fourth grader. Learning about something unfamiliar or out of the ordinary opens the minds of young children and they realize the world is not a one way door. The research done on the computer helps to build a student's use of technology, while writing the brochure also brings gains in writing and creativity skills. Cooperation and independence also took part in this web quest. Students were asked to work together to create the brochure and write a closing note, but also had seperate tasks and research.
