Webquests have proved to be useful for many aspects in education. The inquiry- based lesson format encourages students to develop problem solving, high order thinking, and reasoning skills while fostering analytical and organizational abilities. Students are tasked to actively search for answers through given resources in which is a form of self directed learning.
I have taken the task, along with my classmate, to create a functional and interactive webquest that is designed to teach fourth grade level students how to solve fractions with like and unlike denominators. We provided a task in which they need to complete after navigating through resources we have provided. The resources are added in the order which we felt would give them the most comprehensive format.
I encourage you all to take our webquest and provide any feedback!
