They explore various nonfiction resources about her life and write a short newspaper article on a specific event from Earhart's life and develop a longer piece of expository writing on the life of a different notable woman in history.

Lesson Planet does a great job in matching appropriate resources with the lessons I am trying to find. I need things that will make learning real, but at the same time, fun and interesting, and I can always count on Lesson Planet to provide that.
