...nexpectedly and the challenges they faced in trying to answer questions about their find. Each chapter begins with a question they asked and recounts the scientific thinking, tools, and imagination that were utilized to best answer the question. It is helpful for students to have some background in geology and the structure of the earth. Specifically, it is helpful to review the rock cycle, the geologic time line, and how the earth has changed over time. Alternatively, this lesson can serve as an excellent multidisciplinary introduction to geology, paleontology, and biology. This lesson is aimed towards the middle-scho...
