This WebQuest is designed to introduce 4th graders to the wide variety of people from Kansas and their accomplishments.

Introduction

 It is 2061, the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Kansas.  You and your classmates have been assigned to committees by the Governor of Kansas to determine the nominees for the most famous Kansan Award.  This award will go to the person who best represents the state of Kansas.  Your committee will determine who should be included in the list of nominees and present that information to the residents of Kansas in poster.  At the annual Kansas Day Celebration participants will vote on the nominees and determine who will be known as the most famous Kansan.
