   Welcome back after a glorious spring break! We are starting our newest unit of animal classification and the nine animal phyla. We will go in depth in each phyla with dissections, animations and projects done by the kids. Honors students will have the chance to be the teacher for a day by teaching one phyla about their specific phyla to their class mates. General students will be creating an Animal Kingdom book that highlights all the specifics of each phyla and gives room for dissection notes and questions.

Monday 4/6: Introduction of cladograms
Tuesday 4/7: Cladogram practice and animal kingdom vocabulary
Wednesday 4/8: start our projects- Honors: peer teaching, General: Animal Kingdom book
Thursday 4/9: work day for projects
