This webquest has been developed for San Jose's third grade students as part of a unit about their city. Students research places of interest in San Jose on the internet. They learn about recreational, entertainment, and historical places of interest in their city.
When you go to a new place, how do you know what to do there?
What will you go see?
Most cities have a Visitor's Bureau that gives people who are visiting a brochure telling about the Points of Interest for that place.
What are the points of interest for San Jose and Santa Clara Valley?
If you were coming to San Jose for the first time, where would you like to go?
As you work through this WebQuest, you will answer these questions and perhaps you will find new places to visit, right here in your own city!
