  • 20. This WebQuest can be very time consuming. It can be shortened by eliminating the part where the students create their own work of art. The process could also be tweaked so that the WebQuest can be used for grade levels higher than fifth grade. You can add additional aspects to each of the elements in order to make the process more in-depth. You could also have the students analyze and critique each others’ work, as well as the work that they choose to put in their galleries.
