Russian Revolution Web Quest


Your goal is to create at least a 5-question web quest [using the Internet and primary sources to investigate and analyze an issue] based on an interesting and vital part of the Russian Revolution (the class will brainstorm some possible topics). 


Your Web Quest should include an introduction, briefly describing the Russian Revolution in 5-7 sentences.  Your second paragraph will identify the subject of your web quest and briefly describe it in 3-5 sentences. 


Then, direct your “students” to visit the first Web site.  At this site, your students to analyze the document, image, speech, photograph, movie, etc. from the web site that you have identified. Your questions should include all of these types:

Use at least two unique web sites or web pages for your web quest.  Remember to focus on primary sources (image, speech, photograph, movie, etc.) for this web quest!!!!  Design your sheet along the lines of the World War I web quest.  Do not forget to include your answer page!
