This is a fantastic lesson incorporating many instructional strategies and different activites.  I love the fact that this includes so many different instructional strategies so it will appeal to many learners.  I like that there is the making of the physical clar model as well as the digital tour on Google Earth.  When they do the digital tour on Google Earth will they include the historial facts in their tour?  The lesson is scaffold very well with learning the basic vocabulary, then the clay model and then on to the digitial tour.  This is a great lesson.  

Technical Remarks:

PDF file - works great

A well thought out ID Lesson plan.  It seems engaging and utilizes many different formats of expressing what the students have learned.  I am uncertain how the project will connect the geographical aspect with the historical aspect. 

Also, perhaps investigation of a more engaging approach to the vocabulary might be used.  For example, use of a graphic organizer might make it more effective than a simple vocabulary matching worksheet.

Technical Remarks:

PDF Format.  Worked perfectly.
