Name of Best Practice: Internet Scavenger Hunt

Rationale/Purpose of Event: To introduce the students to the tools needed and the variety of information available on the Internet to enhance their physical education/ personal fitness classes in an internet lab/cooperative learning environment.

Suggested Grade Level: 9-12

Materials Needed: Computers with access to the Internet. Preferably no more than 4 per computer.

Internet Scavenger Hunt

Once a semester I take my students to the computer lab. We then visit my Web page (see below for URL) where they find the directions for this Internet Scavenger Hunt.

Prior to the assignment I give them instructions and guidelines for searching and finding information on the Internet. Their task is then to work in groups to answer the questions I have posted about a topic we are studying (i.e., fitness, motor skills, sports, etc.) in PE class.

Unfortunately, due to time and media center constraints I am only able to give all my students a chance to complete this assignment once per semester. For further information, and the lesson for this semester, visit my web page.
