I really like this lesson and would like to modify it to use in my own classroom next year! I think it's very helpful to have the classroom discussion regarding places to visit in Michigan prior to conducting any individual research. We have a very mobile population at my school so that would be critical since the students aren't as familiar with their state. I also think it's a great way to practice the technology skills of google maps and publisher in a meaningful way for the students. You could also incorporate Excel for the budget portion if you wanted to extend the lesson to include another type of technology.

Technical Remarks:

I was excited to see that you included the handouts at the bottom of the page, but the link didn't appear to be there or it didn't work. I would love to see those!
