Thousands of students have used the Dr. Seuss WebQuest I created for Read Across America Day since I created it a couple years ago. I posted this WebQuest on the blog for the same reason I post everything else – I hoped someone besides myself and my class could utilize my work. Well, I’ve been blown away by its popularity, and I’ve just updated it so that everything is in working order. Since last year, a few links have gone by the wayside. They’ve either been replaced or removed. It’s all been updated so everything is fully functioning and ready to go for this year’s Read Across America Day.
Throughout this WebQuest, students will get to know the writer, poet and cartoonist known as Dr. Seuss better than ever. They will explore his books and characters, and even create a Dr. Seuss inspired character of their own! Click HERE to begin.
Purpose: Students complete a WebQuest to learn more about Dr. Seuss and his books. They then use this to inspire them to create their own Dr. Suess characters. This WebQuest is motivating to students as it allows students to explore and learn at their own pace.
- Students will use online resources to learn about Theodor Seuss Geisel, the writer, poet and cartoonist known as Dr. Seuss.
- Students will explore books written by Dr. Seuss, discovering new books and reflecting on personal favorites.
- Students will create their own imaginative Dr. Seuss inspired character.
- Students exercise technology skills to compile learned information in a Microsoft Word document. Students will: create a bulleted list, insert a table, use shading to fill table background, use text alignment tools and insert headers.
