Reviewer Comments:

This webquest guides students in creating a book about the first day of school while using the internet’s tools. Students are asked to elicit memories from their first day of school and write a story, using the computer as a resource to find adjectives, synonyms, and art design sites for a cover. The student is also asked to go on a scavenger hunt to look for different things around school on the website. These external websites are easy to use. A rubric is provided for the evaluation of this project and students are assessed in these areas: following directions, use of adjectives, appearance and scavenger hunt. State standards are also referenced.
