     We chose opposites because we believe that it is important for a child to understand that not everything is the same. They need to know that not everything is fast, cold, or big but there is also slow, hot, and little items too.
     This webquest is designed to help children between the ages five and six, we chose this age group because we believe that this is the age were children begin to realize but also understand the difference between items. The activities chosen are appropriate for five to six years old because they are able to understand what is being taught to them but it also gives them a slight challenge to their cognitive thinking skills to let them know that everything does not come easy in life, that they actually have to think about it first.
