Tons of information!    October 11, 2008

Great websites- lots of reading. May take several days to get through. This lesson was beneficial in supplementing after introducing the topic. The scavenger hunt was towards the bottom of the lesson, not immediately after talking about using it.
This lesson would be best used on a projector in front of a whole class instead of having students do individually.
