• Ms. Kristi Fix-Biology
    Hello Eveyone! Please find the activity for the weeks of May 11th and 18th.
    Other options for the week:
    1. During the springtime in Virgina there is a species of amphibian referred to as the "Spring Peeper" that can be easily heard near water.  Find a wetland, or pond around dusk and listen for the spring peepers. They make a high pitched peeping sound that is very easy to observe.  Make a recording of the peepers using a cell phone or other recording device and send recording to your teacher. Recordings should be at least 30 seconds long. Students should also include a paragraph describing their experience observing the sound of the peepers. The Augusta Springs Wetlands has been a great spot to observe the sounds. Please be sure to take an adult with you if you choose this option. 
    2. Research the 1976 outbreak of Legionnaires Disease and the later discovery of Legionella pneumophila. Focus on how the discovery of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Philadelphia led to previous outbreaks being retroactively diagnosed. Finally, research the epidemiology protocols of the time and how they have changed to those of today.  
    I look forward to hearing from all of my students! I can't wait to hear how you have used this opportunity to extend your learning about Biology and the "Study of Life."
