This Bluff Lake Explorers Webquest was developed in part to show that technology could be used to enhance informal science experiences. Also, the Webquest was developed to further prepare students for their outdoor lesson at Bluff Lake. The Bluff Lake Explorers Webquest addresses our program standards (Science benchmarks 3.1.3 and 3.1.4) and Information Literacy Standards 1, 3, 7, & 9. Students are assessed to the standards in many ways throughout the entire Bluff Lake program. In this lesson, however, the student Self-Evaluation is designed to provide the Bluff Lake education staff with qualitative feedback about the lesson so that we can determine if it is a valuable addition to our program.

Prepared students are ready to learn! At Bluff Lake Nature Center, we wish to equip students with all the necessary tools for learning in a unique outdoor learning environment. The Bluff Lake Explorers Webquest is yet another important tool. If used properly, students will develop a deeper understanding of the interrelationship between plants and animals and the essential components of habitats in the classroom, and therefore will feel more comfortable and be more open to learning during the field experience at Bluff Lake.
