This webquest covers outcomes from the grade 6 curriculum in social studies and language arts. It has been designed to get learners to realize that stories of history are often incomplete. There is often speculation about historical events.

Introduction

 

Historical events have always been the subject of fiction--short stories, novels, plays, television dramas, and movies. In this WebQuest, you will have the structure and tools necessary to plan, write, and publish a news report based on the first trans Atlantic voyage of John Cabot and the controversy surrounding where the early explorer landed.
