Why Lesson Planet?
Each member of a four-student group takes on a specific aspect of an assigned planet to research. After gathering information, the team works together to create a travel brochure and a presentation intended to convince other classmates to visit their assigned planet. The instructions are given to the group via the Internet, making this a web-based lesson. A pre-test is provided, as well as an assessment rubric. Though it is written as an 8th grade lesson, it can easily be incorporated into your elementary curriculum.
