My partner and I we worked to expectations and maybe a little bit above expectations. Overall I thought we worked really well and we can work together again.
Diagram-My diagram showed labels of key adaptations and I talked about where the trilling frog lived. I worked to expectations because a diagram was drawn and it used some labels to identify key adaptations.
Model-We tried to make our frog life-like and the diagram showed the trilling frog’s natural habitat. I worked to expectations because I made it as life-like as I could with the colour of the frog.
Experiment-Our experiment showed how the trilling frog’s thick skin helps it keep cool. We used chocolate to test this and one piece was wrapped in fabric and the other one was not. The chocolate wrapped in fabric took 2 hours to melt and the other one took about 40 minutes to 1 hour to melt. We worked to expectations because we planned our experiment.
- That the trilling frog uses its eyes to squash its food into its mouth.
- It had half webbed feet.
- The underside of the frog is white.
- Their thick skins keeps them cool.
- They have strong legs to dig into the ground.
- How does the trilling frog use its eyes to push its food into its mouth?
What did I learn?
- I learnt about the different animals adapted to living in hot places. In class we looked at a camel and how it can live in hot sandy places. Our project looked at the trilling frog and its thick skin and it being able to dig into the ground to keep cool.
How did I learn this?
- We watched videos and researched on the computer.
What am I going to do with what I have learnt?
- If I get a trilling frog in integrated studies for a project I can use what I have learnt and use the information I have learnt for information.
I learnt about the trilling frog and how well it has adapted to its environment.
My goal for next time working in a group is to include myself more in group discussions.
