I hope that all of you had a restful and wonderful Thanksgiving Break! These next three weeks are going to fly by! So, it is extremely important to keep up with the work in class.
For these last three weeks of the semester, we will complete two units: Animals and Environmental Issues. This week, we will discuss Animals and the differences between Invertebrates and Vertebrates. The students were given a packet on Monday, November 30th that they will spend the week completing AND student will be allowed to use this packet on Friday's Quiz!!! So, it is important for student to use time wisely, since they will NOT be given the opportunity for any redo or quiz corrections on this week's quiz.
The rest of the month will be spent discussing current environmental issues and human impact.
