Week 5 Outdoor Pursuits 110

Posted: May 3, 2020

ASSIGNMENT:  What’s In Your Backyard? (see links below as possible resources)

This week we will be exploring species that live in the woods and waters of New Brunswick.  You will need to create a PowerPoint or Google Slide presentation that summarizes your findings.  Be sure to include lots of pictures and facts…including any of your own wildlife pictures.  Be great to have video and audio clips as well!  Have fun with this one and I hope you will learn from this assignment what is in your backyard.
