Web Scavenger Hunts

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.
