Introduction
Hello boys and girls you are a marine biologist and I need you help studying some animals. Would you like to help me? You will be observing the animals by looking at some pictures and live video. You will need to record the information you find from your observations in your ocean journal. You will also make and share a small poster showing some of the observations you found about your ocean animal.

The Task
Boys and girls you will get the chance to make a detailed poster showing at least three observations you found about your animal. Your poster needs to show a picture of the animal you observed as well as at three observations you made found. You will also need to write at least one sentence for each observation you draw. You will be given a poster to complete this once you have shown me your observations in your journal.
