Today, we will start with the Roadkill data. TA should hand out the pink table to everyone.
- Using the roadkill list, fill in the chart with the number of roadkill each week. Use the key.
- What do the numbers mean? In order to find out, we start by creating a graph with this information. You may graph the TOTAL killed each week OR the TOTALs of each animal killed.
In the mean time, you can work on finishing your green screen project. We will not be recording, but you may finish your project using the iPad. They upload the movie to your drive.
TA can pass out the white paper about the roadkill project. Note: you have completed #1 already. The graph goes with #2.

Moon rocks were here!!!
NASA's lunar samples will be on loan to Ms. Adams this week. The students will have an opportunity to view three rock samples and three regolith (soil-like) samples. They do fit under the microscope for a closer look at the samples. The samples are encased in a clear material for protection and to avoid exposure to Earth's atmosphere.
Would you like to see the Moon rocks?
