This webquest will be used to introduce elementary students to blogging.
How many times have you been asked this question?
"What did you learn in school today?"
Hundreds and hundreds of parents the world over ask that question daily. It's been asked so many times that often we just shrug and say "nothing" or "not much." We don't truly think about our answer.
No more! Starting today, you are going to take charge of your learning. You will tell the story of what you are learning and what it means to you. You will decide what is worth knowing. You will satisfy your own burning curiosity. You will ask good questions about what you are learning. You will get a kick out of learning.
You will blog with your classmates and build your own special learning community. Your voices will be heard!
Plus, others outside your classroom can join in on the exciting journey. You can read what others are thinking and share your thinking.
Anticipation, celebration, and joy await us! You are about
to embark on an exciting journey. Stand-by! You are about to enter the wonderful
world of blogging!
