5 Nice!
This collection was really well put together. The resources included are well thought out and cohesive. They include a wide variety of resources from journal articles, to book chapters and they all are very interesting reads. One of the articles, the "Science Shorts" one, mentions the Moon and its phases and the student's content knowledge is strengthened through reading and writing strategies which is a great add on.

Nice resources! Loved the variety of resources you included, you did not limit it to only articles or only assessments but you brought a little bit of everything. Based on your in-class lesson it's evident you not only did you know your topic but you could tell that you reviewed and really analyzed all the resources.
