Students will use Internet resources to gather data on roller coasters and represent the data that they found in a table and in a graph format.
How many people like roller coasters?
What is your favorite ride?
Why is it your favorite ride?
As a class, create a list of criteria that the students use to decide if they like a ride or not.
Once they have generated a list, introduce them to the web quest and have then get to work on picking which rides they are going to research and creating their table, graphs and brochures.
