Endangered Species Project
Overview: Chose an endangered species to create a mini-poster about. You will have the rest of today and
then 10 minutes tomorrow to finish and then we will have a gallery walk (you will present your poster to
another person as well). You will be working by yourself on this project and will be graded on having the
criteria on your poster as well as neatness. Use the computers as a resource. Misuse of computers will result
in 4D.
Directions: Pick a few animals/plants you are interested in.
Then, bring up your 100% completed Cornell
notes & Lab for me to check off. First come, first serve. If you did not complete your Cornell notes or Lab for
homework, you will have to wait until the end to pick your topic.
