This webquest / Internet scavenger hunt is a perfect one day activity for middle schoolers to learn more about Benjamin Franklin and his inventions with these fun questions. It is appropriate for middle school social studies/history, science, or technology classes.
The lesson includes the student handout and an answer key, along with a short list of sites that teachers can provide to students to help with the quest if they choose. There are also some additional links to sites if teachers want to expand the lesson. This is a great lesson to leave with a sub too!
