The Everglades Project 
First Deadline: Research-December 6
All research is to be shared on Google docs. Please share two documents- with editing privileges, with both Mrs.Benner(sbenner@berkshirecountryday.org )and Mrs. Tumenas(mtumenas@mybcd.org ) You will be sharing a research document and an image citation document-
that’s 2 documents
 Gather information so that you have the appropriate information to credit sources. You will need the urls of your
factual information to credit in the research document. You will need url, name of photograph, photographer’s
name and the licensing information for each image you plan to use.After you find all of the information you need, transfer your notes to a Google doc and
it by the variouscategories. The Google doc you share should not just be a raw list of information gathered. Please filter yourinformation, organize it and make an attempt to put this in your own words. As this will be a lot of factualinformation, it is very difficult not to just copy and paste. Some facts are just that, simply facts. Other categoriesare more descriptive and therefore more open to your own interpretation.You
must cite your sources for Mrs.Benner’s research, as well as provide detailed credits for the images for
Mrs.Tumenas (see the next page for details on citing images)
Mrs. Benner’s List
1. pictures2. habitat- including a range map3. identifying characteristics4. nick names5. latin name (Genus species)6. reproduction7. food feeding method if needed8. Animals mistaken for9. unique characteristics.
All images should be downloaded to your computer, uploaded to google drive and stored on the U-drive(the server).
Do not paste your images into the google doc.
All images must be credited to the photographeror illustrator on your research document.
Do not use images that you cannot legally credit
. Get twice asmany images as you think you will need and get the biggest size possible- full resolution or original sizes.You will not have time to do this in class. This is homework for science class.
This is an example of the format
for your image credits:
Image Name:
Birds at the Waterhole 2
Rusty One
License Information:
