Reviewer Comments:

Calling All Cell Phones is a curriculum unit that will have students investigate the costs of cell phone plans for a family. The entry activities (Skyping and interviewing teachers and other school mates) may need to be altered, based on the school's availability. The Jeopardy link provided does not include answers. Students will collect data and organize the data into an attractive brochure informing families about cell phone options and costs. Sample completed projects are not included and would be helpful. Computer access is necessary to complete this unit. Overall, the unit is well described and can easily be used in a class setting.
