Anne of Green Gables Webquest

Introduction: In our class you have been listening to the story of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. As part of our unit on this book you will use the Internet to do further exploration on the book Anne of Green Gables and its author. You will be divided into groups and each group will use the Internet to explore a different area. Each group will need to make a detailed record of your findings so they can report their findings to the other groups.

The poster must include all the information that was gathered by answering the questions, have a neat centered title, and 3 illustrations (these can be neatly drawn and colored hand drawings or pictures printed off the web).
