This is a great lesson that can be adapted for any grade level. I agree with the other comment about having an additional assignment option for students to record their presentation or to work in a group setting. Additionally, I added another research guide worksheet to help my younger students with the research portion of this lesson. Thank you for providing this lesson! Greatly appreciated~

I think this is a great lesson plan that aligns very well with the standards. I like that it is cross-content and could be fun for students who enjoy science. The only thing I would change is adding an alternative assignment in the independent practice section. Students who may be unable to give a formal oral presentation could video themselves giving the presentation or be given the opportunity to work on the presentation portion of the project in a group setting.
