Excellent presentation.
Britannica ImageQuest is awesome. Interesting results on "Music" an open concept. The visual cues of the squirrels is adorable. The activity in 5 text images are a great idea to describe for students to choose a important/historical figure to study. Students us resources that may include text, images, videos, and/or primary source for the chosen 5 words that best describe that famous figure. This is a great activity point to the evidence to support the given word. Thinking collectively and independently. Think through and reflect is a good understanding of who the person is at that time period. Connecting people, places, and things with Abraham Lincoln example was a great resource.
