Colonial Art Webquest

Colonial Art Webquest

Due to budget cutbacks many schools have lost their art teachers. While nothing can replace these talented teachers, we can use webquests to encourage art appreciation.

This Colonial American Art Webquest is an excellent enrichment activity for the study of early American history. It was developed by Jeffifer Small for 5th Grade Art, Social Studies and Language Arts.

Ms. Small has clearly laid out the learning process and activities. She has even included ideas for the one computer classroom. In the introduction she presents where in the curriculum the webquest should begin. Standards, printable rubrics, and clear student instructions are all present. The final project would make a great collaborative unit with the computer teacher.

If you are just beginning to use webquests, or have never used one, this is project is perfect!
