KidQuests: WebQuests for Young Kids and Emergent Readers/Writers

A KidQuest is basically a WebQuest for emergent readers and writers. If you've ever tried creating a WebQuest for young children, non-readers, or emergent readers and writers, you've quickly discovered what a time-consuming task it is to find age-appropriate and developmentally-appropriate web-based material for these students. As I pondered this issue, the idea of a KidQuest slowly took shape in my mind.

Below I compare and contrast the terminology used in WebQuests and KidQuests so you can see the relationship between the two, and understand the differences between the two.
