Comment: I thought the website provided and used in this person's lesson plan was phenomenal. I wish that I could have used it with my sixth grade class when we were studying weathering and erosion. The descriptions of each picture or concept being described was straight to the point. Each picture and concept description had an interactive picture that students could click on to view the event occuring. The only problem or thing I thought could be changed was the fact that the descriptions were extremely rich in upper level vocabulary that most average sixth grade students wouldn't understand. Even so, with time, adaptions or vocabulary lessons could be added to strengthen the lesson and bring it to the current thinking level of the students as needed. It was a lot of information so I did find it hard to stay on topic based on what I wanted to read so the students could get confused if we attempted this lesson in the computer lab so all students got a great view of its information and access to its extra activities.

Technical Remarks:

The website worked fine and I had no problems loading it onto my computer.
Time spent reviewing site: Approximately 45 minutes was spent viewing the different properties of the website.
