WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR NOTES WITH YOU ON TEST DAY!
The notes for the Open Notes, Classification Timed Test will be given in class. The "walk-about" will be done in class. You have "homework time" to to become familiar with your notes and/or assemble any additional notes you want. Remember: you will have the class period to complete the test, no additional time will be given. It is suggested you bring your own scissors and glue sticks or tape, classroom supplies are given "as is" and "as available." :(
You can bring any additional notes you want, except...
Check the vocab page for the list of categories. They are also printed on the back side of your 1st page of notes.
This Power Point has the "rules" and reminders about the test that we went over.

Primate Images Collection
as of Fall 2010, "Primates" in Wikipedia is a good source (remember - that can change!)
WikiCommons (be CAREFUL - some old images HAVE to keep the same caption/name, even if it's outdated)
You may want to bring note cards to class. If you chose to take your notes on cards, you will need about one card for each "Take Notes" symbol on the diagram (13).
Here are the specifics for the pictures you need to PRINT or cut from a magazine. (Print a realistic picture or line drawing, Do not print a cartoon or an icon.)
You should NOT wait until the night before it's due to print the pictures!!! If you wait until the last minute, you are choosing to gamble your grade on luck!
EVERY PICTURE MUST BE LABELED (example: "squirrel monkey" or "gorilla")
