Reviewer Comments:

This is an excellent webquest that helps students learn about Jewish history. The webquest takes students to the Museum of Jewish Heritage. There are detailed directions and thoughtful questions for students to answer as they explore the website. The online exhibition is full of engaging images and accessible information for students. While the webquest is perfect as an introductory activity for studying about Anne Frank and the Holocaust, it could also be used in a World Religions classroom. It should also be noted that the online Museum has a lot of other good resources for teachers.
