I think you did a wonderful job on your StAIR! What a great resource for a 3rd grade science class. I liked the text-to-speech component of it (very well use of UDL principles). I liked the clear explanation of each slide, especially the quiz questions. Your StAIR project is very detailed. All the links and resources worked properly and all of them were very informative. The sound effects were fun and properly used. I liked all the pictures; it made your StAIR presentation interesting. I think you met instructional strategies really well.

Clear explanation of vocabulary and the origin of the word “Hurricane”. Great resources for access to more information about hurricanes. Great use of Engagement and means of Action & Expression based on the UDL principals.

Technical Remarks:

There is not much that needed to be added to this project. I was very impressed. I wouldn’t mind seeing a picture of the God “Hukrane” !!
