The idea of our Nervous System webquest is to allow students to explore the internet and use its resources to gain a better understanding of such an important, necessary system in our bodies. Students will collect textual and visual 'artifacts' on their hunt to fully comprehend the nervous system and its function.
Keep this question in mind as you work:
Why is the nervous system so important? How does it keep us functioning during everyday life? What kind of diseases can affect the nervous system's function?
Students are to explore the listed sites and find imporant information, articles, pictures, etc that help to answer the main question listed above.
When students find desire information, they are to check the copyright notice and/or possibly ask for permission from the webmaster to use that material.
Copy any text you want by dragging across the words, then using the Edit - Copy command on the menubar. Paste what you highlighted into a basic text editor, word processor, desktop publishing program or multimedia program.
Save images you like by downloading them. Paste the images you've downloaded into a multimedia, paint or desktop publishing program (like HyperStudio, Clarisworks, or PageMaker) or use one of the graphics viewers listed as Tools on this page to display your collection of images.
Be prepared to cut anything that copyright owners tell you they don't want you to have.
Once you have collected your information, go over it carefully so that you can give clear and thoughtful reasons why you found the things you collected especially important.
