We saw one Frog presentation, with two more still to go next week. A few presentations are awaiting bibliographies and notes before final project grades can be given.
We also took our Frog Anatomy quiz. It was a matching quiz with 25 parts of the frog and a description of each of them. Students needed at least 20 correct to successfully meet standards on this assessment and get the OK to attend the field trip. Quite a few students were not prepared for the quiz, so they can try again. We are around in the mornings before announcements, so that would be a great time to come and take the quiz again. Otherwise, a requiz will be given next Tuesday. Here's a link to the Frog Vocab Review.
We've also posted some frog dissection videos on the Frog Glog for viewing as homework this week. This will be excellent preparation for the actual dissection.
HW: Watch Frog dissection videos, Bring back "Anurans on the Run-Dissection Guidelines & Safety Issues" from your Frog Packet with Parent Signature! Stop to see me for another copy, if you can't find it!
Until next week,
