Incredibly thoughtful and thorough WebQuest developed as a unit on the Middle Ages. Included here is the theoretical background on WebQuests, a unit guide with essential questions, and detailed information for implementing this creative simulation. Students will enjoy taking on the personna of a medieval character as they learn about the art, history, politics, culture, and geography of the Middle Ages. Skills addressed in this activity include, but are not limited to: technology, 21st Century Skills, reading, writing, critical thinking, and research skills. This would be terrific as a stand alone unit or a valuable resource when broken into pieces to suit the needs of your students.
