How did it make you feel emotionally, mentally, or physically? Were you tired and frustrated? Or were you confused and hopeful? Were the cities what you expected or were you disappointed when you arrived? </li></ul>Home For your evaluation, I want you to write me at least a 3-day journal describing your experience while walking on your trail. Reflect on your journey using your senses and feelings in your journal. Use some of the facts you obtained from your Internet search in your journal as well. When you write try to be as descriptive as you can to persuade me to venture on your hiking trail. Each entry should be at least a page typed with a maximum font of 16 and double spaced. I can not wait to hear about your A D V E N T U R E S !!!
  7. 7. Conclusion <ul><li>I hope you had fun creating your trails. I am happy to see your motivation to move to stay healthy and fit. I wanted to venture on many of the trails that were created.

What does the pedometer actually do? They should know how to reset the pedometer and put in on. It is also a good idea to discuss how many steps need to be taken to walk one mile. After they are familiar with pedometers, I would probably ask for computer time or ask a classroom teacher to work with you to complete this task. After the students navigate to the home page, the WebQuest is self explanatory and equipped with everything a student needs to complete the lesson successfully. The time to complete the WebQuest is unique to everybody’s access to computers and possibly the help from a classroom teacher. My goal would be to give deadlines for each step in the process to keep everyone up to date and complete the WebQuest in about one month. </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment </li></ul><ul><li>The assessment is included in the WebQuest on the Evaluation page. </li></ul>A WebQuest designed for third and fourth graders incorporating social studies, science, math, language arts, technology and physical education. a lesson plan Return to main page
