This webquest is designed for second grade students who will study about weather in Indiana.
This webquest is useful for students that are studying weather and who also are working on the writing process. It was designed for second grade students, but might work for third grade also.
The students will be researching information about various kinds of severe weather on the internet, (specifically the kinds that occur in the midwest) designing a brochure, and working collaboratively in a group.
There are also several "fun" follow-up activities that are included on the final pages for students that get done quickly or need an extension to what they've learned.
