In "Moon Over Us: Faces and Phases" 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 21 to October 21 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 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.
Thank you,  Bonnie Thurber and the iCollaboratory Team.
