The entire unit, including teacher guide, discussion questions, and lesson plans, is available as a series of downloadable Adobe Acrobat PDF files which can be printed and used in the classroom or at home.

Encourage them to explore the extra links. Students can create charts to organize the information they have gathered. Students should submit their work and conclusions and discuss different possibilities.
