This is just a very basic outline of what my paper and discussion will include and what I hope to teach you about:


Sea Turtles
I. General Characteristics
a. birth
b. location/habitat
c. life span
d. reproduction
e. physical characteristics
II. History
a. Evolution
b. Relationship to other turtles
III. Current Status
a. conservation
b. endangerment


I feel that this animal is important to learn about because it is very prevelant in the area we will be traveling. I really like sea turtles so I chose to research them.
