What it is like to live in a rainforest? A WebQuest from I4C. Links verified on 11/18/2014 by Bill Byles Introduction | Task | Process | Evaluation | Conclusion Introduction Rainforests are being destroyed and the National Institute for Scientific Research has decided to find out what can be done about it. You and three of your friends have been selected to spend the next year living in a rainforest in South America. You have three weeks to find out how you need to prepare for this adventure.

The Introduction describes the nature of the lesson and the essential question(s) that will be answered through completion of the exercise. The Task section describes the expected results for the WebQuest. The Process tells students how they should go about accomplishing the end result.

The Evaluation provides a concrete explanation of how performance will be evaluated. The Conclusion provides a summary and ties it all together. The Credits section provides links and citations for any sources of information, including media, that you have used while completing the WebQuest. English speaking Countries.
