Dear Parents,

I will be assigning  home projects for October. The theme for this project is Zoology.

The zoology they have studied so far this year: (they can choose their own topic, or get ideas from what they have already studied.)

Level 1’s- 5 Classes of Vertebrates

Level 2’s- Mammals

Level 3’s- Sponges

I am giving students creative control for what they want to make or bring. Please keep in mind that this is the student’s project. It would be a great idea to brainstorm, some good ideas, but please let the students have all the credit for what is delivered. I will be assigning dates for students next week. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Some Ideas:

Video

Act

Pictures

Poster

A model

I can accommodate to however you want to share. Think outside the box and get creative! Also, if you would like present a PowerPoint or anything with a projector, you need to plan to bring/send it the day before, in order to reserve it.

Thanks,

Miss Elise
