Online Scavenger Hunts can be used to introduce topics. By following a PowerPoint presentation with appropriate links, students can be led to various websites that will inform them about certain topics. To help guide students through the websites, it is helpful to provide a worksheet so students can pick out the important information.
The lesson was intended to be for upper-elementary aged students (grade 4), but the project can be easily adapted for any grade level. The Online Scavenger Hunt can really be used for any grade level that can handle a computer and the Internet.
