In this one-day activity, students learn about the history of the White House and refine their Internet search skills as they complete a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to answer questions about the topic. A complete answer key is provided for easy grading, along with resources for both teachers and students. Students can be provided with the sites that have the answers (in the provided Student Resources) or directed to search the Internet on their own. Two versions of the WebQuest are included to let teachers print the questions or to provide them digitally as an interactive page in an editable Microsoft PowerPoint file. Additionally, a word search puzzle with answer key is included, perfect for early finishers or to use as a part of the lesson.
This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary as well. Great for use with a sub too!
This lesson is great for distance learning/remote learning. You can upload it to your school’s learning management system (Google Classroom, Edmodo, Canvas, etc.) or share with students via Google Drive.
