Field Trip Presentations
You all know that you will be required to do a "presentation" while we are on the rive on our field trip. I have been intentionally vague about what you should do because I want you to have the flexibility to (1) learn about a topic you are interested in and (2) share that info with your classmates in an interesting way. Unfortunately, we won't have a long enough extension chord to use Powerpoint, so you will have to settle for leading your class around the campfire, in a beautiful canyon, or at a scenic overlook.
In light of Daisy's suggestion that it would be a good idea for you to know what each other is doing, I have prepared this Field Trip Presentation post. This post will allow you to stake your claim to a topic, share ideas, and get feedback from your classmates.
Daisy's Got Dibs
So far Daisy has claimed the always popular topic of "periphyton"! If you wanted to talk about algae then you will have to buy the rights to this topic from her (I suggest $400).
Daisy- while I was being a smart-a@@ looking for a photo of periphyton to post, I came across a couple of websites that might actually be useful to you.
