a weekend assignment, each student is asked to record
and sketch all the animals they see native to their
area. This should include birds and insects. On Monday,
the class should consolidate their list and send it
to me. If a scanner is available, scan some of the
drawings and email them to me. I will do a similar
activity except I will take digital pictures instead
of making drawings. To find any animals, I will probably
hike over to a penguin rookery. Hopefully, I will
be able to tour one of the biology labs and get to
see some animals that I wouldn't otherwise get exposure

be sent to me)
