This is a lesson plan that is ready to implement into the classroom immediately, it fully is aligned to each standard(s) tagged. The author has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource. There is a rubric that measures the mastery of the standards but needs more formative and summative strategies. There are a few areas in which lead this to a PBL such as the students making a public product and the collaboration needed to create the Google website. The area in which needs to be strengthened is the intellectual challenge because the students aren't able to investigate challenging problems because the lesson is too directive.
