If you found "The Web Hunt" to be a worthwhile project for introducing the World Wide Web to your students, why not design your own hunt or have your students design a hunt. They can search the Internet Links contained on the Our Lady of Peace School website to find information from which they can create questions to challenge their fellow students.
