Youngsters investigate autism and autism spectrum disorders. They access a variety of websites which present information on ASD's, and assess how accurate the information they've read actually is. They work in groups and utilize worksheets embedded in the plan which guide them through a fact-checking process for each of the sites they look at. Finally, each group creates a display that has many of the most important facts about autism and ASD's. An excellent plan!
