|1.||In this activity, students use the Web to research and learn more about three favorite health topics: hormones, sweat, and nutrition. You can assign a specific Web quest or have the students choose the one that interests them most. Each quest provides links to appropriate sites on each topic, followed by questions for students to investigate. The final project for each quest is different. For sweat, students answer questions to solve a puzzle; for hormones, students choose their candidates for the top five hormones in the body; for healthy foods, they will create an advertising campaign for their favorite healthy foods.|
|2.||Establish a time frame for students to complete their Web quest and submit the related final project.|
|3.||Assist students as needed to facilitate the completion of the quest.|
