For the moon investigation activity, students are building their own websites, contributing to blogs, and using iPad Minis to collect and digitize data over the course of the activity. The multimedia artifacts they create over the course of the assignment will be used to create a final multimedia report as a representation of their learning. Using a constructivist framework, the activity requires that students perform observations of the moon, think critically about the observations they are making, reflect on what they are learning, and share their learning with others. Building on this, students receive direct instruction on how they can use similar processes and procedures to explore complex scientific concepts with elementary school students.
