Extra Credit for Quizzes
Wild Kratts is a tv show on PBS that highlights one or two special animals an episode.  (My sons watch it every weekday at 5pm.)  Watch an episode, and write down the following information; date of episode, animal name, and ten good facts about that animal (or ten things you learned from that episode), in sentence form.  You can earn up to 10 bonus points on a quiz for each episode you watch!  (You cannot push any quiz grade above a 100%.)  We study animals all 3rd 9-weeks!  Enjoy and remember - I'm watching these episodes too, so don't just google random animals!
 



Don't pay attention to this stuff… hahaha.
