This webquest has been designed to introduce students in year 5 to the concept of sustainability. The webquest provides students with background information on recycling, climate change, the effects this has on our plants and animals and environment in general. Factual accounts of inspirational young Australians contributing to a preferred future are a highlight and would be a great motivational tools for students. Although the webquest does not ask the students to create solutions it does plant the seed and prompt students to improve our way of life, thereby lending itself as a preliminary activity to designing a solution. This webquest could be used in alignment with the Draft Technology curriculum to encourage students to plan and create solutions for sustainability as a need for preferrable futures.
