On the whole this is a very good lesson plan. I like how you've tried to incorporate various aspects of ULD. The learnig objectives are very clear and the lesson plan details the objectives, process, testing, and application. I also like the incorporation of CC, as this is often overlooked. Prezi is a good tool for free, but it is far better with the paid version.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the links did not work because they were pointing to your harddrive instead of a public location. The Prezi does not jump to instructions, instead it jumps directly to the video.

Overall, this seems like a very good lesson that details certain animal behaviors. Using the modifications, it seemed as if it would work well with students who learn in different ways (not just visual or auditory). The content is extremely engaging and would keep the attention of students. The use of the Prezi is amazing, and it seems like it would help all students see and hear in the information. If the CC’s do not work, it may be helpful to use another source (like the lesson plan mentions).


It may be useful to include more student led activities. This lesson seemed somewhat teacher driven and did not focus as much on student discovery of knowledge. Guided notes are good, but it may be useful to use a tool like Voicethread to give students a multitude of ways to view or hear the information.

Technical Remarks:

This lesson plan seemed to work fairly well. Some of the links to PDFS and PPTS did not work. The links to outside resources did work. The link to the Prezi worked.
