The purpose of the Web Quest was made for my media and technology class for my undergraduate program. This Web Quest will focus on a first grade standard of Georgia Science S1E1. The student will observe, measure, and communicate weather data to see patterns in weather and climate.



Dear class,

Good morning first graders! My name is Azan and I live on planet Ulnion. I plan to visit your planet, Earth, and would like to learn more about the different weather patterns and seasons there. Can you please create a weather journal about the different weather patterns and seasons? I would greatly appreciate it!

Your alien friend,
