The Giver WebQuest
Introduction
Task
Process - Skin Color
Process -
Arranged
Marriages
Process - Weather Modification
Evaluation
Welcome, new Receiver of Memory! Now that you have learned that the world used to be very different before the community went to Sameness, you will research one topic that you recently learned about.
Remember that memories and knowledge give you wisdom!
For this assignment, you will research one topic related to The Giver. You will be able to choose from four topics: 1) skin color, 2) weather modification, 3) arranged marriages, and 4) seeing color. The following four slides will assist you in the directions of your choice.
After researching your topic, you will prepare a presentation for the other members of the community. Your presentation may be a brochure, a poster, a PowerPoint, or a Prezi. The rubric that the community will use to evaluate you is included at the end of this presentation.
In one memory, you saw that people used to have different skin colors. If you choose to research skin color, you will need to find out (1) why people from different parts of the world have different colored skin and (2) how much of the diversity in skin color is genetically encoded.

Finally, write three paragraphs explaining why a society that values Sameness would want people to have all the same skin colors. Powerpoint/Prezi must have atleast six slides with included paragraphs. Brochures must contain front and back information and posters need to contain the three paragraphs as well.

In one memory, you saw that there used to be sunshine and snow. If you choose to research weather modification, you will need to find out (1) reasons why scientists/ governments want to change the weather, (2) what techniques there are for doing so, (3) what countries are participating in weather modification, and (4) if it is harmful to the environment.
Finally, write three paragraphs explaining why a society that values Sameness would want the same weather all the time. Powerpoints/Prezi must have atleast six slides with included paragraphs. Brochures must contain front and back information and posters need to contain the three paragraphs as well.

In your community, the Elders choose mates for adults, but you have seen that people used to be able to choose their own spouses. If you choose to research arranged marriages, you need to find out (1) how common they are worldwide, (2) the rationale for arranged marriages, and (3) what the divorce rates are (as opposed to love marriages).
Finally, write three paragraphs explaining why a society that values Sameness would want arranged marriages. Powerpoint/Prezi must have atleast six slides with included paragraphs. Brochures must contain front and back information and posters need to contain the three paragraphs as well.

Process - Seeing Color
You have seen in memories that there used to be color
in the world. If you choose to research how eyes see color,
you need to find out (1) what parts of the eye/brain are involved in seeing color, (2) causes of color blindness, (3) common types of color blindness, and (4) prevalence of color blindness in men and women.

Finally, write three paragraphs explaining why a society that values Sameness would not want people to see in color. Powerpoint/Prezi must have atleast six slides with included paragraphs. Brochures must contain front and back information and posters need to contain the three paragraphs as well.

Conclusion
Well done, Receiver of Memory! Make sure you're responsible with the information you share with the community. The fate of the citizens depends on it!
Memory Box
Your second assignment
You must create a memory box where you look into your own history.
1. You must create a memory box where you will place your information.
2. You must interview atleast two people in your family/neighbor over the age of 50 and record five of his/her memories onto a slip of paper and then create/obtain a visual for the memory. (The visual may be an object, picture, or a drawing.) You should have ten total memories in the box.
3. You will use this information to present to the class. The presentation only has to be about one out of the two people you interviewed. ( Rubric is on the next slide)
