This web quest is intended to help you broaden the understanding of a third grade student about the stars and constellations. It can be used as an aid for your unit on the solar system. It requires the students to investigate the solar system, more specifically the stars and constellations. Students will have to go through the process of investigation (research) and presentation.



Have you ever wondered what a zodiac sign? How and why a star blows up? What a supernova is? What a black hole is? Well Today you will begin a journey through space!! You will be learning about stars and constellations.  You will connect to some cool websites that I have selected for you, or you might look around and find some yourself.  Do not worry you will not take your journey alone!
