Endangered Animal Research & Presentation

Endangered Animal Research & Presentation 

Students learned to research an animal that is listed on the Endangered Species List.  Once they have found an animal they were required to use 3 Search Engines and 1 book to find information about their animal.  Then they were required to cite the websites and books they used for research using MLA style.  They used Bibme.org to help them cite their resources.  One major rule was not to cite Google as their resource.  I had to remind them Google is a Search Engine. 

The following was the requirements for their notes:
  • Use Bullets for your main points about your animal.  For example population, location, and etc...
  • Use Number bullets for your facts.  For example what they look like, what they eat, and etc...
  • You must have at least 10 facts about your animal and 5 sub-facts.
  • What was the reason for the decline in population.
  • How can we help?
  • You must have at least 4 web resources and 1 book.
  • You must have used at least 3 different search engines.
  • You must have at least 1 map.
  • You must have at least 5 images that pertain to your animal (not including the map).
  • You must cite your sources in MLA style.
  • You must cite where you located the pictures.  The website name and address.

They were required to type up their notes using Google Docs. 

After they were finished with their notes they created a presentation using the information they researched.
