Quicksilver Question Web Module

University Of Washington, 2004

Students and teachers alike enjoy investigating the fictional town of Quicksilver, Washington in this online learning adventure. This interdisciplinary web-based curriculum for middle school students uses problem-based learning methods and a virtual interface as students investigate sources of mercury contamination in a historic gold mining town. The web-based module is supported by extension lesson plans that further deepen students’ understanding of environmental health and mercury. Ms. Bergsman wrote the text and managed the development of the module.
