Middle schoolers examine the role of photography in telling and shaping history. They view online photos that Life magazine has identified as changing the world, then conduct research on one of the photos. Students create and present an oral presentation and a PowerPoint presentation or poster presentation.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
