  6. 6. Student Page [Teacher Page] Conclusion Title Be very proud of yourself. You provided care for the large number of penguins while in your care. By reading the story “365 Penguins”, you will better Introduction understand the life of penguins, their habitats, cost of care, develop graphs, and present our work through the hand-on-experiences of the use of Task technology. Excellent Job! Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits
  7. 7. Student Page [Teacher Page] Credits & References Title This project would not have been successful without the teamwork and Introduction dedication between us. When brainstorming on how we were going to approach this task we thought about each of our strengths and weaknesses. Then we Task were able to distribute who would do what to bring it together as a team .
