1. Use books/the Internet to choose a species you find interesting. Make sure enough is known about it to allow you to answer the questions below.

2. On Canvas, go to the Google Slides document that has been set up for your discussion section. Check the Slides document to see if someone else in your section has already chosen the same species. If they have, you will need to choose something else. Once you have chosen a unique species, add a slide to the Slides document with your species common name, scientific name, and your name, along with a photo of the species. Complete these steps by AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE your section.

3. Answer the questions below and bring this completed worksheet with you, on paper, to your section. You will give a very brief presentation (about 1 minute) about your species in section. You don’t need to prepare any other materials for the presentation.

The presenter of the most interesting species will receive extra credit! Common and scientific name of selected species:

8. Why is it important for people to know about this species?

9. Please list 3 additional facts about your species that you think your peers will find interesting. A good place to start is by asking yourself why this species is interesting to you. Why did you select it as your species? (Hint: “It was the top result on Google” isn’t a good answer.)

Test out your fun facts on your friends! 1. 2. 3. 10. List your sources here, including the URLs of websites you used. If you included the wording from a source verbatim in your answers above, make sure those words are in quotation marks and indicate the source.
