Investigating the Swissair Flight 111 Tragedy

Middle schoolers read two articles about the same event: "Plane from J.F.K Crashes off Canada" from the New York Times and "No Survivors from Crash of Swissair Jetliner Off Nova Scotia" from the Associated Press. They then compare the information in each. Once they find conflicting information, they discuss why the information may differ, and they showcase their findings on a poster. Finally, they write a journal entry about how certain assumptions can color one's view.

Lesson Planet is a phenomenal resource for finding new ideas and lessons for the classroom. What makes Lesson Planet so unique is that many of the lessons found are complete with worksheets, detailed instructions, and they are aligned to content standards. It is the only lesson resource that I gladly pay for, and it is worth every penny!
