In this activity student groups, after being given the proper background information, will work together to determine the likely food source and overall body shape for each animal from a single dinosaur tooth. Class discussion will then be initiated by naming the animal whose tooth was described, then showing color pictures of reconstructions of the dinosaur and its environment. Additional discussion ...

In this imaginary fossil hunt, students learn about the uncertainty of science and the fact that, as new evidence is revealed, ideas may change. As they follow a script read by the teacher, students find (remove from envelope) paper fossils of some unknown creature, a few at a time. Each time, they attempt to reconstruct the creature and each time their interpretation tends to change as new pieces ... Full description.
