Resources For Teachers
 My goal for this WebQuest is that it will serve two purposes. First, to provide my 5th graders experience with the criteria used to evaluate websites and second, to provide a list of Missions' resources to use for a California Missions Resource Website.

The impetus for this idea was that so many of the websites about the Missions have good information but they do not list the sources used. I felt, since we are one of the few schools blessed with the opportunity to be at a Mission, that we should use our skills and experiences to create a website that could be used as a comprehensive resource for fourth grade teachers and students. The site is currently a work in process and I hope to have it finished by Spring of 2006.
