Step 1 - Planet Worksheet Go to Paden-Documents-Science Astro Reseach-Planet Web Quest Fact Sheet. Download the document and record all of your planet facts on the worksheet. DON'T PRINT.
Step 2 - Planet Research Use the  websites listed under "Resources" to find  your planet facts.
Step 3 - Presentation Work with your group to create a slideshow of 4-6 slides about your planet. We suggest that each group member create one slide illustrating 1/4 if the facts. All slides must have a graphic, sound, and special effects. Don't forget a title and author's name on each slide. Use a flash drive to put all of the slides on one group member's laptop. Add transitions and you've got a presentation.
Step 4 - Evaluation You will be graded in three categories on this project:
     > Science - facts are accurate and thorough
     > Writing: Clear & Effective - presentation is interesting, well-written, and easy to understand
     > Writing: Mechanics - correct spelling, punctuation, and formatting - automatic "1" if title is not capitalized
