Sources for Endangered Animal Report

Your child has selected an endangered animal. They are to bring 3 sources about that animal to class by Wednesday. These sources can be internet articles, books, encyclopedias, or magazines. These will be used to gather information about their endangered animal. We will be learning to take notes that the student will use to write a rough draft and then a final report about their animal. Most of this work will be done in class. They will be receiving an English and Science grade on this report.

Animal Pictures

Each student is required to bring 2 pictures for each of the 5 vertebrate groups: fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. These are due on Tuesday, August 17. They can be from magazines or the internet, but they can not be drawn. This will count as a Science grade.
