Reviewer Comments:

This video and its corresponding activity can be found on the DragonflyTV website. This lesson would need considerable refinement to be immediately useful in the science classroom. The CRS would like to see the Educational Level narrowed to reflect the target audience of the website, listed in their educational philosophy statement as ages 9-12. Also the main activity is very specific to the Bronx Zoo Congo Exhibit Live. Is there an effective way to generalize this activity? The content, in any form, is interesting and will be engaging for many kids. Adding some objectives or assessments would considerably round out the pedagogical value of the lesson.
