Students will have been taught how to use the database as part of their curriculum several weeks prior to the unit. Therefore they should be very comfortable when building their database. Students will be assigned various roles for the imovie. These students will become experts at their various skills to complete the iMovie project. Timeliner will be taught as part of the unit before starting the task. These students have a lot of experience at searching the internet. Journals, landscape drawings, letters, and a spreadsheet worksheet were included as traditional forms of resources.
