This appears to be a very comprehensive lesson, and is easy to navigate, but
what a terrible waste of the Web's potential that there are no illustrations!
This lesson cries out for photographs and interactive identification activities.
All this material is just text. A good text book would be just as good, or
better if it had photos. Effectiveness would be increased enormously by some
visual examples. 3-D animations would be even better.
