The teacher can read sections of
the story aloud. Then there will be a chance
to guess what the fossil is. The students write
on a guess sheet log what their guess is and
why they think so. They must then do research
to support their guess (hypothesis). Research
can be done directly on the web site or from
their own resources. The teacher then reads
the next section. This section gives more clues.
The students revamp their hypothesis (if necessary)
and fill out another entry in their guess logs,
and do more research. This goes on until enough
clues are given to identify the fossil or decide
that the fossil can not be identified.
