All students will be engaged by this lesson and learn great research skills, but this is also an excellent resource for teachers who are working with remedial students or students who do not learn well in traditional settings. It is also great for teachers wanting to implement project-based learning. If you're preparing middle school kids to go to a New Tech High, this is an awesome resource.
