MATERIALS: Netscape, optional texts and references
SUMMARY: In this project, the learners use the internet to research the planets in our solar system. This seems fairly standard, however there is a twist. Instead of using the typical methods of presenting a report, the learners will produce a web page with their data. I have included a templats at the end of the lesson with step-by-step instructions for each section of the project.
OBJECTIVE: To research, compile and create a web page about the planets of the solar system.
PRIOR KNOWLEDGE: Internet search strategies, basic HTML
TIME ALLOTED: 5 - 7 Days
The students will use this template to compile their planet data. Each section will list specific instructions and examples.

These pages were developed through GirlTECH, a teacher training sponsored by the Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC), a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center.
