Watch this page for additional extra credit assignments.
1) Watch Cosmos on Sunday at 9:00 PM on Fox. Tell me 5 things you knew about this already, 5 new vocabulary words and what they mean, 5 things you learned, summarize the show and write a one-paragraph response to the show.
2) Read a book about the body. Books that I have recently enjoyed include How We Die by Sherwin Nuland, Teenagers: A Natural History (which is about how your bodies and minds change during the teenage years), Gulp (about your digestive tract), John Glenn’s autobiography (John Glenn was the first American to orbit the earth and the oldest person to go into space) and Apollo 13 which is about an emergency on one of the Apollo spacecraft going to the moon. Any science book would be acceptable, but you may want to check with me first at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will update this page by Monday, April 13, with additional extra credit homework.
