This s trategy is a powerful strategy for building vocabulary. As per reading content, it is cross-curricular as it uses as springboard of the vocabulary lesson, topic in science area. The strategy also addresses multiple intelligence needs and skills. The fact that it uses informational websites makes this lesson fun because kids like working on lessons with access to modern-day media like the internet. Surely I will adopt this lesson in my vocabulary instruction in my ESL class.
