I made a few changes based on the feedback I received. The first thing I changed was I created an example of the completely google doc for teachers or students to see. I added a learning intention that had a higher DOK level by having the student write comparisons. I also changed the word survey to better show the form was a summary of what they did. On the form I added a question that had the students write their comparisons. I also added a printable version of the form so teachers could choose how to give the assessment.

I like this lesson! Something I like about the resource is that it has the students working together and comparing different animals. It seems like it will be a fun lesson for the students. I like the assessment pieces and think it will do a good job of assessing the students' learning. I wonder if there is a better way to assess their learning besides a survey. Do your students use forms a lot? Do they use Google Classroom or Canvas ever? An opportunity for improvement is the learning outcomes could be a higher DOK level. I believe identify and state are both DOK 1. I know during the lesson students are asked to compare animals. Comparing is a higher DOK level and it might be good to include that in the lesson objectives/outcomes. One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is providing the students with an example.
