Dinosaur Tracks and Critical Thinking

Get your young scientists excited about geology through the study of dinosaur tracks! They will use their power of observation to learn how tracks are made and use critical thinking strategies to suggest a scenario in which they were made. The suggested inquiry activity could be whole group or individual projects. They will be assessed on inference and sequence of events. While this lesson isn't detailed, the ideas for outcomes are very strong and highly engaging.
