About IWitness Activities

Currently, there are three types of IWitness Activities that educators can use with students: Video Editing Activities, Information Quest Activities, and Mini Quests.

Several activities have been designed by Echoes and Reflections Partners to offer additional opportunities to extend the lessons in the Teacher’s Resource Guide.
