In this project, students become cultural astronomers. They take a survey about the moon; draw images or take digital pictures of the moon once a week from September 19 to October 19 to get the full cycle; research and compare each others images of the moon; create webpages that include poetry, history, beliefs,stories, and research. Students use dialogue,comments, and discussion to share their valuable insights. The project ends with a final survey and sharing reflections. Students receive iCollaboratory/Kidlink Web Badges and a certificate for completing the project.

Please join us with your students by sending an email to icollaboratory@gmail.com letting us know how many students you have. Also attach a five column spread sheet with each student listed by  username, password, firstname, lastname, and school name. 

We look forward to seeing you in this project.

A special note: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2014-october-8 will be happening during this project!

Thank you,

Bonnie Thurber and the iCollaboratory Team.
