    Upload all of your photos to a folder on google drive* - you may want to share with your group so that all of the photos are in the same place. We will use the computer to lab to create a zoo presentation that showcases your finds - presentation should include the name of the animal and which category (from the list) it applies to.

    Take a photo of your group in some interesting location for your cover slide!

    *Important! - photos taken with phones and cameras contain METADATA, which includes information about when the photo was taken and what device was used. Do not try to pass off internet photos as your own. I will know!
