Today is Endangered Species Day! Your task is to choose one of the many endangered species on this list:


You will create a Google Presentation that tells the story of this species. Be sure to include:
  • where does it live
  • characteristics of the species
  • why is it endangered
  • why did you choose this animal/what do you like about it?
Your presentation will NOT be Presentation Zen! No bullet points needed for this project. You will write complete sentences on your slides, telling the story of this animal and how it became endangered.
