1) You may choose a disease to research (maybe even one that runs in your family) (examples include diabetes, breast cancer, arthritis, etc…)
2) You may choose to research a certain animal….since we will be studying the eye and ear at this time, here are some animals that have amazing eye/ear adaptations:
Colossal squid, tarsier, chameleon, dragonfly, leaf-tailed gecko, owl, mantis shrimp, ogre-faced spider, stalk-eyed fish, spookfish, African elephant, bats, greater wax moth, dolphin, pigeon.
3) If you feel strongly about another topic, please let me know.
You will be presenting your projects to the class, so please understand everything you write and put everything into your own words. Do not use vocabulary that you do not understand. If you have questions or need help, please come see me or Mrs. Carruthers for extra help early in the process. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. BE SURE TO MEET ALL DEADLINES. HAVE FUN AND CHOOSE A TOPIC THAT REALLY INTERESTS YOU!
