Web Quest:  Rancocas Creek Heritage

Grades 5-12

Take your students on a web-quest!  Students do the work of a museum curator by making a difficult decision—three other parks  have asked to borrow the same 18th century object for an upcoming exhibition.  This online search activity is meant to increase students awareness of the heritage of the Rancocas Creek by conducting Web research on the Rancocas Creek and kayaking, analyze the results and present their decision on which of three exhibitions—one on invention, one on the underground railroad, or one on water safety—should be included in a program.  Students make their own decisions guided by Teachers. 

RP programs and outreach present a matrix of innovative programs focused on multi-use public access, the Rancocas Creek National Water Trail nomination, safe paddling, healthy living bridges to recreation, maritime cultural heritage, Natural History of the Rancocas Creek tidewaters and issues related to the conservation of Rancocas Creek.

RP views the Creek and its associations as a natural value added asset to examine scientific and educational areas of the tidewaters that is a tool to enhance public programing, outreach and paddling excursions.
