My son's assignment -- collect 30 facts about a South American animal. The facts can't be obvious ones like "it has fur". And certain facts (like scientific classification) can only be broken into four facts (so you can't use all of Kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species as 7 facts). The animal he was assigned: The Monster Rice Rat.:huh::huh: I really want to go back to the teacher and ask if she's ever looked for information on the monster rice rat. The wikipedia page is two sentences. The conservation page is another couple of sentences and its scientific classification. And those two pages are all that comes up. Technically, nothing even says what it eats. And I'm really not sure this is a fair assignment when other students are getting animals like, "jaguar". Sorry, just griping.
