This lesson was created as part of the WebQuest Academy Program for the Warrensburg R-VI School District, in Warrensburg, MO. This program is funded by a Competitive Technology Grant from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. I would like to personally thank Mr. Stan Smith for sharing his knowledge and expertise in the creation of this document. I would also like to say thank you to my collegues Cheryl Jaeger, Tamera King, Paula Rumsey, and Shannon Schwartz for allowing me to brainstorm during our work time.

This page was created for the purpose of student's observing a spider as a real and fictional component in literature. Students use reading and writing skills, observe factual information, and construct a book on their own .

I would like to extend my thanks to the Nova Scotia Garden Guide for the information on their website. The pictures are real and informative to the audience. I also want to thank author David Kirk for the use of his website. Mr. Kirk is talented and delights young children with his whimsical way with words. In addition, I wish to recognize Eric Carle, author of brightly illustrated books. The web sites are available on this Webquest Webpage.
