with the following

The class will then vote on the best posters
after I make the first set of selections. The winners will
be used on the online field guide that we will create! The
posters needed are:

Wednesday - Students
will get some more time to finish their posters.
We spent most of the period
during 4th period and the whole period during 5th period
working on the posters.
HW - Finish your posters
for homework if you didn't finish to get a good grade.
Thursday - Today
I got students started on resizing and renaming all their
photos in preparation for creating our online field guide
HW - Only to finish posters
if they are still not done (I will accept them until Monday).
Friday - I
have a sub today.
Students will continue resizing
and renaming all their plant photos. Here are my directions
for today in the order they need to be done:
1. Resize and rename all the
pictures on the folder they created on their desktop so that
they have a small, medium and
large copy of each picture file.
2. If they are done with number 1 they can finish identifying
3. If they are done with numbers 1 and 2 they are NOT to wander
and help (bother) other teams. If they wander or goof off then
the other teams will too and no work will get done. In that case
they are to go to the Life
Science links page (the page where
the links to the plant id websites are) and click on the link
at the bottom of the Plant Id Resources area. On the webpage
it reads: For those done identifying, resizing and renaming all
their plant photos check out this website: Parts
of a Flower.
HW - None
