Once we were done with notes, students had 2 tasks:
1. Shark Dichotomous Key (do on sheet of paper)
a. Complete dichotomous key found in the documents folder
b. Choose one of the 14 families, research the entire classification of an organism from that family from Domain --> species (wikipedia is a fine source to use for this!). Write this down!
c. Write the scientific name for this organism correctly along with one of its common names.
2. Darwin Map
a. Follow instructions in the documents folder to map Darwin's voyage.
b. Use "Darwin's Excerpts" to help you complete your mapping.
- You cannot take a ship across land! You'll have to travel AROUND a land mass to get from one place to a seemingly close destination.
- There are small islands Darwin visits that are not visible on the map (that's why it will appear occasionally that he's in the middle of the ocean).
- Longitude is curved. Make sure you follow the curves when plotting!
We will continue working on this tomorrow!
Homework tonight is pages 289-294.
