1. Ask students if they know how old Mickey Mouse is. Take guesses and write them on the board.
2. Using the website listed below, encourage students to explore the site, taking notes on milestones in Mickey's career.
3. When research is completed, students should create a Timeline of Mickey's career, illustrated with drawings (or downloads, if you prefer) of Mickey's changing "look."
4. At the end of the Timeline should be Mickey's current age.
