In this WebQuest, you will do research on the political life of early America, using Internet resources as the museum's exhibits. These exhibits should feature important information on early documents that helped run our country (such as the Constitution), early leaders (such as Thomas Jefferson) and early events (such as the War of 1812).

After finishing your tour, you will choose a topic from the time period and write a fictional short story that takes place during this time. The story, though fictional, should feature at least some real characters and events.
