Grand Canyon WebQuest
Created by: Mr. Longwell & Mr. Belanger
You just bought a new pair of hiking boots and have planned a hiking trip to the Grand Canyon. However, before you begin your trip you must do some research about the Grand Canyon, its geology and how it formed. You may already know some things about the Grand Canyon. Some of you may have been lucky enough to actually have visited it. But it would take many visits, several weeks long or a lifetime to learn every thing there is to know about it.
Complete the Scavenger Hunt to gain a general knowledge about the Grand Canyon (If you loose your scavenger hunt worksheet, click on the link at the bottom of the page to print out a new one)
