Your lesson does a great job of including a wide variety of teaching practices and assesment options.  I think this will give you the opportunity to reach a large majority of students in your class no matter what their learning style.  I also really like the use of manipulatives in your lesson.

Technical Remarks:

I would have liked to see the handouts to see what they looked like.  Other educators might want to use them too!

This lesson plan does a great job of incorporating direct classroom instruction, peer collaboration, and a variety of assessment options.  I really liked the inclusion of the "Guess Who" game which allows students to work with other classmates and interact with the material they are learning.  The lesson plan accomodates a variety of learning types to make sure that all students in the classroom have the same access to the learning material.

Your lesson chooses to use a variety of teaching method, maximizing on the Universal Design for Learning. I saw in your lesson that students participate in whole class discussion where I assume you lecture and provide examples for students, they then have an opportunity to have hands –on learning with the manipulatives, followed by eventually using the applet online to cement learning and “Guess Who” collaboration game. Providing students with so many different opportunities for learning will keep students engaged and also maximize on all learning styles. Good job!

Technical Remarks:

I noticed that you wrote that the lesson plan had worksheets and an applet that went along with the lesson on the teacher website. By any chance could this link be provided on MERLOT so that educators could actually use and implement this lesson? It sounds like a great UDL resource and would be nice to be shared fully.
