UNWIND TRANSPLANT WEB QUEST This web quest is designed to help you understand more about organ donation in our current society. Use each of the slides in this presentation to help you learn more about the organ donation system and process. You will work in groups of three with one laptop per group. You will use your own paper to answer the questions for each slide. You may work on the questions together, but each group member should have his or her own answers to turn in for a grade. Head your paper with the MLA Heading: Transplant Web Quest.
