Fifty-two primary school students completed a series of project-based learning activities designed according to the proposed model (BlogQuest) for six weeks. The development of students’ critical thinking skills were captured by a pre-test and a post-test of a standardized Critical Thinking Test whereas student’s perceptions towards the pedagogy were solicited through questionnaire survey and interviews. Results showed the small effect in critical thinking development and favourable perceptions towards such pedagogy. Though there were limitations, the teachers saw the education values of BlogQuest especially for addressing the different needs for students with different abilities and characters.
