Invasive, Extinct, Endangered, and Threatened Species Project
In a group of four or less you will do the following project.
You can use PowerPoint or Prezi to do this project.
General Requirements:

  1. Choose four different species – one from each of the following lists below: Endangered, Extinct, Invasive, and Threatened

  2. One must be native to California

  3. One must be native to the US – other than California

  4. One must be found in another country or have a range bigger than one country.

  5. One must be a plant



Project Requirements:

  1. Your names and period should be the first thing visible.

  2. Use separate slides or views for the information below. Ex. #3 is on a slide by itself and #4 is on a slide by itself, etc.

  3. Title the slides or views with their appropriate title so we know what information is on it.

For each of the four species create a presentation that contains the following:



  1. Which type of species it is (Invasive, extinct, endangered, or threatened). The scientific name (Latin) and common name – including a good picture or two.

  2. Background information about the species - a good basic physical description, including identifying features, feeding behavior and diet, reproduction and number of offspring, etc. – could put another picture.

  3. A map of its native habitat and habitat requirements. If it is an invasive - include a map with current introduced distribution (shaded) AND a description of the organisms preferred habitat conditions.

  4. What is the cause for their status (especially human impacts). All impacts need to be explained. What is the impact and how does it lead to a decrease in this species. No general statements. Ex. Human impacts hurt the species.

  5. Solutions/ successes/ possible courses of action for protection or removal. All solutions need to be explained. What is the impact and exactly how does it help protect or remove this species. No general statements. Ex. Human can protect or remove the species.

  6. Bibliography at the end. It should be broken down by species. Under the species name it should site all your resources and where you got them from for all pictures and information that you used on that slide. Wikipedia is not allowed as a source. Use the following resource to cite your work properly. http://www.easybib.com/ Insert the web address where you got your picture or information and it will walk you through the steps.
