A web scavenger hunt can help you to apply and
transfer what you have been taught about effectively searching, evaluating and
using web sites.
It can be integrated with a unit of study such as
the Grade 4 - Habitats and Communities unit in
the Science and Technology Ontario Curriculum. Then it will not only provide
you with an opportunity to apply what you have been taught about using the world
wide web for research, but you will be finding important information for
your learning tasks, such as a research project.
A web scavenger hunt can provide
you with a pre and post test for your search and evaluation skills or it can be a fun opportunity
for information problem-solving on your own or in a group.
