Teacher Introduction

  This webquest will help teachers evaluate their students' knowledge about the original 13 colonies. The goal of this webquest is to have all students gain an understanding of life in the colonies. They will choose which colony to locate their hotel and convince other colonists to stay there. Students will research the colonies and pick one to create a brochure, pamphlet, newspaper article or powerpoint that will try to persuade settlers from England to move to their colony. The students will also give a pursuasive speech to practice their public speaking.


We created this webquest to be a suitor for all types of learners. That is why we incorporate videos for the auditory learners and websites for the visual learner. We also used interactive websites for kinesthetic learners. We understand that every child learns differently. So we made this webquest for every type of learner.
