A literature webquest designed for 2nd graders.

Teacher Introduction

Victoria Shanghai Academy, Hong Kong


This lesson was designed for 2nd graders who are looking for a challenge.  Following the VSA Scope and Sequence, students in the 2nd grade learn about reading and writing through book reports, novel studies, and extension exercises.  Roald Dahl books are a great way to introduce students to written communication.  This WebQuest incorporates research and literature in a fun way for students to learn.

“If you want to remember what it’s like to live in a child’s world, you’ve got to get down on your hands and knees and live like that for a week. You’ll find you have to look up at all these… giants around you who are always telling you what to do and what not to do.”
Roald Dahl
