This lesson focuses on searching for images as part of Internet research. While briefly covering digital citizenship and responsibility and copyright, the primary focus is on Creative Commons licenses and proper citation of digital images.
I really enjoy the topic and goal of your lesson plan. It is very important for students to recognize that they cannot just borrow information or images without citing where they grabbed the material from. I feel as though teachers need to take the time to teach such a lesson so that they can stress the importance to their students.
The practice portion of your lesson points out that you had the children look up images that will be relevant at another time. I think that it is so important to give students a valued purpose for each assignment so they see why it has meaning to them and in the future.
An additional piece to the meaningfulness of the lesson could be educating students of the effects of using information illegally without citing where it came from.
Although students are expected to complete parts of this lesson independently, you leave the door open for classroom collaboration by encouraging them to utilize their peers as needed.
I could not get the link for creative commons under the practice portion of the lesson to work. It kept saying that it had a problem loading the page. The other links worked for me though! (http://www.search.creativecommons.org/)
