I used the following standards during my WebQuest:
4.ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe
2) Use a model to explain how the orbit of the Earth and sun cause observable patterns: a. day and night; b. changes in length and direction of shadows over a day.
4.FL.VA.7c Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases, including those that signal precise actions, emotions, or states of being and that are basic to a particular topic
4.RI.KID.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly; refer to details and examples in the text when drawing inferences from the text.
4.SL.CC.1 Prepare for collaborative discussions on 4th grade level topics and texts; engage effectively with varied partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing one’s own ideas clearly.
4.W.PDW.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. (Grade-specific expectations for writing types are defined in standards 1-3 above.)
I used the following book in my WebQuest: Why Do We Have Night and Day? Alix Wood.
I think that this WebQuest provides the students with activities that will successfully provide the students with what they need to understand the process of night and day. During this WebQuest, I will provide students with differentiation by providing the students with one on one time. I will guide and aid students that need it. I will assess the students by reading their diaries and sentences including the key words. If students are able to answer them correctly, I know that the WebQuest has provided the students with an understanding of night and day. I used a website for the students to watch an additional video and write down the questions and answers of the quiz on the website. I believe that this WebQuest will be successful in the aid of the learning of night and day. It provides the students with visuals and facts about the process of night and day.
