Recycling Wasteville [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for 9 th and 10 th Grade Biology Students Designed by Lisa Waltermeyer [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 13. Teacher’s Introduction [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This WebQuest lesson plan was designed as part of the curriculum in EDUC 331 in the Teacher Education Program. This class takes place at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. This WebQuest is designed for an Earth Science or Biology class. This WebQuest, Recycling Wasteville , navigates students in teams of four, or less if you want them to work in pairs. You will just have them take on two manager roles each. During this WebQuest the students are asked to pick management roles and complete each of the tasks associated with that role. The tasks include defining reduce, reuse and recycle, identifying recyclable items, make fliers of these items, thinking of ways to reduce waste in their lives at school, home and in the community .

  • 14. (Teacher) Who Are The Learners? [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This WebQuest was designed with either a Biology or Environmental Science class in mind but it can be used any way you desire. It might be a good lesson plan for Earth Day, Arbor Day or any environmental awareness lesson. This WebQuest could be used for middle school or high school students. Modifications might need to be made to the rubric to adjust to the students level. There is no major prior knowledge needed to complete this WebQuest. The WebQuest will involve website navigation, story writing and map making. A class discussion about recycle might be useful. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion

  • 16. (Teacher) Process [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page
    • Below is the shorten version of the process that is given to the students in detail. Depending on how many students you want in a group will effect the amount of time required to complete this assignment. If they are in groups of four, I would recommend one to two class periods and if they are working in pairs I would designate a few periods to this WebQuest. It might be a good idea to talk to each group the first day and see who is managing what activity.
    • Divide students and have them pick their management area.
    • Each manager has a list of activities that must be complete
      • Town Meeting Manager has to write an article to the local paper about the project, hold a town meeting and write up notes about that meeting including benefits of recycling and how the town can go about reducing waste.
      • Household Recycling Manager is to type out flier for the homes explaining what is recyclable and what is not. Also this manager is to define reduce, reuse and recycling while including ways for Wasteville residents to incorporate these process into their lives.

  • 20. (Teacher) Script [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page It might be useful to go over the WebQuest as a class before the students try to tackle it themselves. I would recommend showing them how to use the links to navigate from page to page, epically in the process section where they have to click on the earths. Splitting the students into their teams and having the roles established before going over the manager roles may save you some time in explaining each task to each group. Navigating a couple of the websites as a class might also be helpful. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • 21. (Teacher) Conclusion [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This is a good lesion for a Biology class or any earth conscious unit. It is not designed to be too difficult but the students should be able to learn the basics of recycling while expressing their creative sides. Modify this WebQuest in anyway to suit your needs and have fun. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
