Thursday's Inquiry

After watching the video in the last posting, do you think I caught a mouse or a vole?

Mice and voles are similar in many ways, but do have differences too... can you inquire about what is the same and what is different? It might work best to make a double bubble map so you can compare and contrast them!

After you have compared and contrasted the mouse
and the vole I want you to inquire as to how these two mammals have evolved (adapted) to survive over time. There are physical and behavioral adaptations they have both made...

I look forw
ard to seeing what you can come up with! (Use resources if you need to.) Be thinking about your response, I will be Skyping with many of you Friday and we will talk about the mouse and the vole.

We haven't done research yet, but we watched the video of you getting the animal out of the trap. Our class thinks mostly that the creature you caught on the video clip is a mouse. We hope to check into the animals more to find out if we are correct.
