FC Activity Report: 7/16/2020 by Sarah Lehman

Categories: Hellos With Fellows, Sarah Lehman

On July 13th, 2020, at around 10:00 AM, I signed on to Zoom to observe a ‘sharks program,’ as it was titled. After the Rules of Respect were reviewed, the group members were asked what their favorite ocean animal was, with varying answers. Then, one of the call leaders brought up a site that allowed the group to locate and read about various sharks and other animals that were being tracked by different people. Additionally, they also engaged in playing a shark-themed game of bingo (primarily searching for the names of different shark species) while viewing an aquarium camera.

I will admit, I’m not really into the study of aquatic life, and I don’t get why some people are really into sharks (Shark Week, in particular, baffles me), but I think we can learn a lot from observing sharks, dolphins, whales, & similar sea creatures. They are susceptible to changes in their environment, such as oil spills, overfishing, and other major problems. Moreover, some sea animals have very interesting traits, like how sharks regrow teeth very quickly and very often. Anyone interested in biology, especially marine biology, would probably enjoy using the ‘marine animal tracker,’ whether for sharks or other creatures.

Fan Fic Genres By Sarah Lehman

TwitterFacebookLinkedinPrintemailIn my last blog post, I discussed some common terms used by fan fic writers. This time, I’d like to talk about genres, or types of story. Like the stories they’re based on, fan fics can be sorted into several different genres. Romance is one of the most common, but you also have adventure, drama, horror, humor, and so on.… Read More
