During this study two experimental groups and one control group was established. During the implementation process; Webquest supported activities with Experimental-1 group, PowerPoint presentation was used for Experimental-2 group and Control group with textbook supported (traditional) activities were used. The application period is determined as 12 lesson hours. Findings of the study revealed that Webquest supported activities have a significant difference in achievement scores for astronomy subjects.
