QUEST

Your Quest is to choose a pet that you would like to own.  Before narrowing down your choice, you first must research 5 different pets you are interested in to learn about the responsibilities involved in owning and caring for a pet.  You will work in teams of three to use the Internet to research information, such as supplies, costs, and time involved in caring for the five pets you are interested in owning.  Your team will then narrow down the choices to three pets and research these pets in more detail, using other Internet sources and e-mailing a pet expert.  The team will then reconvene to create a final presentation using PowerPoint.
