Reviewer Comments:

Great lesson, but needs to have the grade level and subject included in the lesson plan.Also, the standards listed at the end of the lesson are from NGSS, but this seems to be a CCSS ELA Grades 6-12 Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects aligned resource.
