Assignment for Monday March 9th: With your group, create a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation for class about your assigned sense. Include 1) Sense organs, what they are, and how they work; 2) Differences in sense organs/sensory perception between reptiles and amphibians and among orders or habitat types if applicable; 3) At least one example using data from peer reviewed literature (interesting or exceptional). Bring your presentation to class on Monday and I will combine them into a single PowerPoint, which will later become available on the website. Each member of your group is expected to participate in the production and presentation of your sense. There will be a single grade given to each group (out of 20 pts).
