This well-constructed WebQuest begins with the announcement: “The moon has been accused of causing the tides! Using real data collected from the Internet, your team’s job is to bring proof one way or another!” The group task, the process for finding data and establishing proof, and the evaluation are outlined and explained clearly. However, as on all WebQuests, you will have to check the site addresses given, since Web addresses change or disappear over time. The two-week project, which depends on analysis of real data, culminates in a final report to the court.
