All about Canada: 13 Webquests (EAL, ESL, and LINC)

All about Canada: 13 Webquests (EAL, ESL, and LINC)

Get students engaged by having them use tablets, iPads, or desktops to learn key facts about the Canadian provinces and territories online! These one-page webquests direct students to a Canadian government website in order to answer questions about provinces and territories. Because websites are provincial government websites, you can be sure the information will be accurate, and the website will be around for a long time. The webquests are primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 1-3, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. They could also be adapted for use at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Finally, the webquests could be used by newcomers to Canada who are preparing for the Canadian citizenship examination. Each webquest took my class about an hour to complete. For your convenience, answer keys have been provided. Feedback is greatly appreciated.
