Students will spend their classtime this week creating a detailed 20 slide presentation, mobile with 20 informational pieces, or a board game with 20 facts to be covered and learned and then present to the class.  This will need to be over a breed type that I have assigned.  This will be done in partners  They will be graded twice a week on their progress to make sure students are completing their work.  When they have finished they will need to present that to the class.
