Lesson plan has been updated by fixing errors, external link, adding a video, and making adjustments for the final project/assessment to be completed during center time at school rather than at home for those students without support at home.

There are many things to like about this resource, including strategies for diverse learners, student choice regarding which digital activity they will complete, multiple assessments including both formative and summative, and a community/life connection.
An opportunity for improvement of this resource is the correction of several typos in step 2 and step 4, and the PBS link has been deprecated and should be replaced. An alternative is http://interactivesites.weebly.com/float-or-sink.html.
Something I wonder about this resource is what if first-grade students don't have support at home to complete this assignment? Will an alternative, in-class option be provided for these students?
One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is in-class or at-home use of instructional video to supplement student review of sink vs. float. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQuW8G2QV_Q. Overall, a very nice resource!
