In this fun one-day activity, students learn about May 4 (Star Wars Day) as they complete a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to answer questions about the topic. A complete answer key is provided for easy grading, along with resources for both teachers and students. Two versions of the WebQuest are included to let teachers print the questions or to provide them digitally as an interactive page in an editable Microsoft PowerPoint file. Students can be provided with the sites that have the answers (below in Student Resources) or directed to search the Internet on their own.
This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary as well. Great for use with a sub or just a fun break from the traditional activities while still learning Internet search skills.
