This webquest is about gathering information about the life, characteristics, and contributions of Abraham Lincoln. Based on the information, the group of scientists should decide whether or not to clone a new Lincoln. The crew on the quest will present their findings and decision in class in group, and write a brief report individually. The evaluation will base on the presentation and the written report.
Considering the language level, this webquest is best applied to the bridging level of ELL in Grade 6-8. It is designed for group learning without instruction from the teacher. Of course, it is more favorable, if the students have the experience of studying historical figures before.
