Bat Webquest

Bat Webquest

Go batty over bats with this webquest. Let your students soar through learning, while having a screeching good time.

Help your patrons build great research skills while having fun. This thematic unit uses the web as a research tool.

Older patrons can be introduced to the Silverwing series by Kenneth Oppel. This is a great adventure series featuring an undersized bat named Shade. Shade is separated from the colony. It has all the aspects of a great quest.

Younger patrons can begin by reading Stellaluna. In Stellaluna, a young bat must learn how to be a bat, this is a great jumping off point. Patrons collect the needed information that she needs to live as a bat.

Develop the list of questions that the students need to research. Examples are:

  1. Where do bats live? Students can draw a bat habitat.
  2. What types of food do bats eat? How is this helpful to humans?
  3. How do bats fly at night?
  4. Do all bats look the same?
  5. Are vampire bats real?
  6. Bats fly, but are they birds?
  7. What are some myths about bats?
