Invertebrates have no backbone.
Through the creation of a Science Notebook, she is learning organizational skills, and how to follow project instructions.
There are certain guidelines for the successful completion of this project:
1. Each of the six sections will use a different colored paper and will consist of a title page, a characteristics page, a report on one animal, and at least five pictures of animals from that group. So far she has her colors picked out... red, purple, orange, green ,blue, and pink. She chose red for mammals, and purple for birds.
2. The title page gives the name of the category.
3. The characteristics page for each category should be neatly written on notebook paper, attached to a piece of colored paper, and placed just behind each title page.
4. Include one report for each of the categories. These should be written in cursive on notebook paper, mounted on colored paper, and placed right behind the characteristics page. In the "bird" section below, she wrote a report on the red-winged blackbird, and the scarlet tanager.
5. At least five pictures are needed for each of the six categories. Neatly mount pictures on colored paper. Each picture must be labeled with the name of the animal. She used my label maker to print out the names of the birds.
This is her decorative cover. :) The project is going well, and she is actually ahead of schedule.
This was the section on mammals that she completed last week. Things may get a little "fishy" next week.
