Zoo Exhibit FAQ
What is the quarter project?
The quarter project is about the costs of maintaining an animal in a zoo exhibit. (A copy of the packet is available on the class webpage if a student has misplaced theirs.)
Does the front page need to be passed off?
No, the front page does not need to be passed off, but it does need to be completed prior to the second page. This is because the work on the second page uses the expressions created on the first page. If the expressions aren't completed first, the solutions on the second page may be incorrect. However, I am willing to review it prior to the student completing their poster or brochure.
Will there be time in class to work on the project?
Honors Classes: November 20th was the "work day" for the project, which was unfortunately timed with the 6th grade field trip. Students will have time in class November 22nd after they complete their concept check for lesson 4.4, but as Friday is a short day, it may not be very much time.
Traditional Classes: We worked in small groups November 21st to complete the first page of expressions. Students will need to complete the remainder of the project at home.
Are there any supplies that students need to pick up?
No, there aren’t any supplies that need to be picked up.
What should the final project look like?
The final project can be a poster or a brochure. Some students have chosen to do the project as a brochure using a brochure template in Google Docs or Word. It is up to the student how they want to present the final product. I do not expect large tri-fold displays or large posters. (I have some construction paper here that they can pick up tomorrow if they would like to use it.)
When is the project due?
The project is due on Tuesday, November 26th. Students may turn it in early for an extra 10 points. Late projects will lose 10 points per school day.
