  2. 2. Put the Title of the Lesson Here Student Page Title Credits A WebQuest for xth Grade (Put Subject Here) Designed by Put Your Name Here Put Your E-mail Address Here Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Alright space cadets, listen up! Starting today, your mission is to research your assigned planet, create a plan to safely travel to that planet, and record your progress along the way! Let’s look at the list of tasks to begin your voyage! Introduction Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion
  3. 3. Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Each of the members of your crew has a specific job! Each group will produce a small journal, recording the process of preparing for a journey to their planet, from start to finish. One crew member will also make a poster, diagramming your assigned planet’s properties, interesting facts etc. Someone must build a model of the crew’s spacecraft. One member will also have to provide a list of supplies needed for survival if the group were to get stranded on their planet for a week.
  4. 4. Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Before you can start your mission, you must research your planet and find out some important information, including: the size of your planet, the climate of your planet, does you planet have seasons?, how far away from earth is you planet? What are some important interesting facts about your planet. Then, your group may begin making a poster, describing your planet. Include the information that was initially researched. Be colorful and detailed! Meanwhile, based on the research of your planet, a crew member can start creating a list of supplies needed to survive on the planet for one week. Make sure to think of EVERYTHING, including, air supplies, food, water, shelter etc… Another member may begin working on designing a model of the spacecraft you will take to your planet. Be sure to keep in mind what sorts of things your ship will need in order to make it to your planet safely and return back to Earth. Will it need on-board air supplies, wheels, rocket boosters? You may want to research what ideas have already been used on previous actual spacecrafts. Process Part 2… Click Here

  7. 7. Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Congratulations, you have completed the training and preparation for you mission! You have learned much about your planet, space travel and what it takes to plan a trip to outer space. Your plans and proposal will be submitted to the director of space travel over at headquarters and she will decide whether your plans will succeed! Good luck cadets! Check out some credits!

Space Quest(Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for Elementary Schoolers (Collaborative Subjects) Designed by John Breeding [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  10. 10. Introduction (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson was designed for elementary school students to be used as a collaborative teaching tool, shared between various subject teachers. It incorporates research, critical thinking, hands on creativity and basic composition and math skills. The purpose of this webquest is to explore the topic of Space exploration and the history/future of travel in our solar system . Students will also explore what would be needed for a hypothetical voyage to another planet. I know that almost universally, students learn about the solar system and space travel in the elementary school level, specifically between 2 nd and 5 th grade. This would be a great activity/ research project for teachers of different content areas to collaborate with each other. A science teacher and a math teacher could pair up and work on different aspects of the final project. Language arts teachers may be able to incorporate the idea of writing a journal or log into the project, and an art teacher may explore the concept of space landscape painting or model rocket building.   Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion

  12. 12. Curriculum Standards (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion The studenst should be able to understand and communicate the importance of space travel and exploration. They should also gain information on the history and possible future plans of space travel in the USA and at least one other country as well. The student should be able to demonstrate their knowledge in various tasks including written, oral and visual displays. Colorado Model Content Standards- SCIENCE Standard 1 Students apply the processes of scientific investigation and design, conduct, communicate about, and evaluate such investigations. Standard 4 Earth and Space Science: Students know and understand the processes and interactions of Earth's systems and the structure and dynamics of Earth and other objects in space. (Focus: Geology, Meteorology, Astronomy, Oceanography) Standard 5 Students understand that the nature of science involves a particular way of building knowledge and making meaning of the natural world. Colorado Model Content Standards-MATHEMATICS Standard 1 Students develop number sense and use numbers and number relationships in problem-solving situations and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Standard 2 Students use algebraic methods to explore, model, and describe patterns and functions involving numbers, shapes, data, and graphs in problem-solving situations and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Standard 3 Students use data collection and analysis, statistics, and probability in problem-solving situations and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Standard 4 Students use geometric concepts, properties, and relationships in problem-solving situations and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Standard 5 Students use a variety of tools and techniques to measure, apply the results in problem-solving situations, and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Standard 6 Students link concepts and procedures as they develop and use computational techniques, including estimation, mental arithmetic, paper-and-pencil, calculators, and computers, in problem solving situations and communicate the reasoning used in solving these problems. Colorado Model Content Standards- READING AND WRITING Standard 2: Students write and speak for a variety of purposes and audiences. Standard 5 Students read to locate, select, and make use of relevant information from a variety of media, reference, and technological sources. Standard 6: Students read and recognize literature as a record of human experience.
