This week's homework assignment is to read one of the following books:
* The Shaman's Apprentice: A Tale of the
Amazon Rain Forest
* How Many Monkeys Make Chocolate: Foods and
Medicine From the Rainforests
* The Most Beautiful Roof in the World:
Exploring the Rainforest Canopy
* Bugs, Bats, and Biodiversity: Adventures
in the Amazonian Rain Forest
When you have read the book, you should write a a one-page response to share with the class on Friday.
There is an upcoming unit exam next Thursday on Rainforest Environments, so be sure to adequately prepare for this by reviewing all quizzes taken, study quides, and portfolio work done during this study. Good Luck!
Friday following your unit test, we will take a field trip to the Bluebonnet Swamp. This will serve as an introduction for our next unit of study concerning "Wetlands." I think you will enjoy this. Be sure that you return all permission slips in time. I don't want to leave anyone behind.
There will be a group project concerning our study of wetlands, and I will have that information available to you at the end of this week.
