Field Study: Each student is responsible for drawing a biotic or abiotic specimen that they see on campus. They must draw and color the specimen in their Field Books. The specimen must have a fractal component (either in it or in it's background).


Biology will also complete:

Terrestrial Biomes: Groups of students will have assigned terrestrial biomes in which they will have to make a travel ad. They must try to convince their fellow classmates to visit their biome.
