Frederick County Public Schools has trained teachers in a
series of institutes entitled Camp WebQuest in the
summers of 1999, 2000, and 2001. During the 4-day workshops, funded

inquiry-based lessons. These lessons, or WebQuests*, are indexed,
starting from this introduction.
WebQuest is an inquiry activity or lesson that presents students
with a challenging task, provides access to an abundance of usually
on-line resources and scaffolds the learning process to prompt
higher order thinking.
