Activity #89: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Today students did activity #89 which is called: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow. The activity was a reading about species that are endangered or extinct. It talked about possible theories in which the Mammoth went extinct and we discussed whether or not we should try to re-create extinct species. The second part of the reading was about the Asian Elephants who are on the Endangered Species List. We talked about why this species was threatened and what should be done to protect them from going extinct. This was the first activity for Unit F: Evolution and its objective was to discuss the trade-offs of either helping endangered species or trying to re-create extinct species. The students than looked at similarities and differences in the Mammoth's extinction and possible extinction of the Asian Elephants in the future.

Homework: Start Reviewing earlier units :)
