Conclusion Introduction Task Process Evaluation Teacher Page In the end this Webquest was developed to create an interactivity journey for 4th graders to meet Common Core Standard SC-04-2.3.5. By the end students will understand that the moon appears to move across the sky on a daily basis much like the Sun. Students will also understand that the observable shape of the moon can be described as it changes from day to day in a cycle that lasts about a month. Finally students will apply Common Core Standard SC-04-2.3.5 to write an opinion piece on the topic supporting a point of view with reasons and information.
