Escellent lesson! I love how you are incorporating both social studies and language arts into one lesson and then utilizing technology to enhance its effectiveness. Also, I like the aspect of students teaching one another and working on their public speaking/presentation skills in this lesson. The objectives are well defined and standards are listed. I will definately use this lesson style in my classroom.

Great lesson.  It was clearly labeled and extremely easy to follow.  Goals and objectives are clearly defined.  There is also a clear rubric which has an appropriate scoring scale as well as relevant categories for the assignment.  Finally, I love how the lesson has students teaching each other, as this not only reinforces their own understanding but may provide clarity to students who are struggling.
