Hello Fellow 4th Grade Scientists,

We are flying into our second week of our Solar System Unit:
This week we will start a Solar System Web Quest. You will be placed into a "Company" where each person on your team will have a job. Your goal is to put together a vacation package for a planet your team picks. All directions and tasks can be found on the Quest site below. Good luck scientists!
