In 5th grade we study the regions and states that make up the United States. At our school we also have a classroom name for each class. Our class is the Jaguar Room in honor of the last remaining Jaguar seen in the US. Because of this, we are interested in studying extinct and endangered species of the SW. This is not limited to vertebrate species, but to plants and insects as well. We would like to bring awareness to the causes contributing to each species demise. We plant to address this problem with a public awareness campaign. We will create infographics that we will spray paint onto the sidewalks at our school so that everyone will be able to learn about these special species.
