When your group has finished these activities, you will combine with one other group.

construct a board game using the questions each group has made up about their prophets. It could be a game similar to Snakes and Ladders, Jeopardy, Trivial Pursuit or one that this larger group would wish to make.

Once this is completed, swap games with another larger group and "Play their Game"!


5. Now that you have finished the research part of this WebQuest, you need to get to the heart of this WebQuest! Besides doing your "duties", you will also play a role or perspective and debate the topic - "Prophets in Australia - in our History and today?"

After researching and debating, your group will present their findings to the class.

Individually hand in your answers the Stimulus and Focus questions.

As a class, come to a consensus about which people are Prophets in Australia today and be prepared to give reasons for your choice.
