Please download the preview file so that you have a better understanding of what you are purchasing. The lesson plan and PowerPoint were last revised on 10/21-22/2013. All links worked on those days but I cannot guarantee any links because I do not control the internet. Thank you in advance for rating and commenting on this lesson plan. Please be as specific as possible when you comment so that other teachers know why you rated as you did. It also helps me become a better teacher and writer.
