This lesson seems well organized and it seems to adhere well to the UDL principles overall.  It is very easy to see that you used reverse design in creating this lesson and the goals are very clearly stated.  My primary concern is that students don’t have many options or paths to take when it comes to demonstrating their understanding of the content.  I have had any experience with flipcharts myself but would be interested to see if their was a way to incorporate and type of videocast into them for students who struggle with learning and demonstrating understanding with text.  Student who might struggle with reading may struggle with aspects of this assignment.  I would love to seem some technology aides incorporated such as text to talk to help those students who might not be able to handle the reading load that well.  Overall I think your lesson is well organized.

The lesson seems very interesting, yet it doesn't seem age appropriate for the age group you chose. This seems more appropriate for 4th graders. I like that the students will generate a class rubric.

Technical Remarks:

As a suggestion, maybe list a few website options for students to evaluate.

Shaimaa, I wanted to check your work for the week's assignment, but I was redirected to a google doc that seems to be broken. Only half of the lesson is showing in there. Please check and let me know! Thanks.
