I am a huge fan of self-directed learning and I am glad you are applying this principle in relation to the scientific method. I think this is a great combination. I really wish, though, you would be more specific in relation the lesson plan. When I see great ideas I always wonder they are produced and if it would be successful in my course. I know others work better with creative liberty, but you can never go wrong with over specifying.

Excellent job.  very professional and well planned out.  I think you did an outstanding job on the evaluation portion.  I also think that presenting to small groups was a good idea

This is a well written and well though out lesson plan. It is easy to follow and meets UDL.
