The Big Picture: Scientific Competition

As students solve sections they write up and publish their observations taking note of who publishes new theories first, who is cited and how often participants are published.

Lesson Planet has changed my whole teaching style. I am able to customize my lesson plans for relevance not by what is already available. I like the relevance to issues facing today's youth.
