Endangered Species Project
The following websites are to be used to acquire your information on your endangered animal.
- Look up the information on one website and verify your facts by checking them on the other websites.
- Do not Google your endangered animal. This is a lesson in research. You need to be able to verify the reliability of websites used when researching information.
- You must record the title and dates of information you researched on the Citation Sheet. This must be done to insure that you learn that credit must be given to those that publish the information. You are now learning that if you do not give credit to researched information, you are plagiarizing.
- You must use at least 2 or more sources for information.
- All information must be put in your own words. Remember, copying from the Internet or a book onto your document is plagiarism.
- Short bullet statements only - no long paragraphs.
- All information on the slide sheet is due in class by November 8th.
- You need to bring your slide information to computer class each week until the project is complete.
