This WebQuest correlates with the North Carolina
Standard Course of Study and integrates goals and objectives for the kindergarten
curricula areas: Healthful Living, Computer/Technology Skills,
and Guidance Curriculum. It can easily be adapted to additional grades
and subjects. In order to complete
This WebQuest will address the following Standards:
Healthful Living - 5.2 Naming and categorizing foods.5.3 Identifying health promoting foods.

respect for the work of others. (SI)1.4 Demonstrate correct care and use
Guidance Curriculum-3.1 Learn the rules for participating in group discussion.3.2 Demonstrate knowledge of the importance of following rules for group discussion.3.3 Learn effective listening skills.3.4 Recognize the importance of working together in a group.
Students will be divided into groups of four or five. From here the Process will be determined by your unique situation ( ie., access to a lab or classroom computer). The teacher will need to work through the adventures with the students in order to instruct them on how to navigate through the programs. Most of the projects will need to be teacher directed. Students will then have time to navigate through the programs on their own during center time, in groups of two. Students will then create a poster to share their information with the other members of their group.
In their groups, with teacher help, the students will complete Bananarama
Question Time, Truck Story Time, and
Individual team members will be evaluated
by how well they answer the questions, gather information, and share with
their team (see: rubric).
You may want to print the rubric out ahead of time for students to refer
to as they complete the WebQuest.
Your detective team should now know what good eating habits are and if you practice them or not.
Like good dectectives who follow their adventures through to the end, good eating habits will follow you throughout your lifetime. An exceptional detective always gets paid for his work.
