This Webquest was an adventure through space using children's literature. This 2 hour activity was a great way to get children involved in ELA, Science, and group work, all while using technology. To use this in your classroom, your kids will have to have a good understanding on the solar system that they already live in. (Otherwise, how will they learn about the things outside of the solar system.) Most of all, this was fun for everyone! It was fun to develop, fun to implement, and fun to reflect over. The interactivity among the students increases with projects like this one! All science teachers should consider doing this activity to teach the children about things in space.
