The 4th graders are preparing for their field trip this Friday! Today they had 2 questions to think about. 1. How do scientists know exactly what a never-before-seen-creature looks like? Dinosaurs, for example. and 2. If given a picture of one part of the animal, how could scientists guess what the rest of the creature looks like?
The students were given a small part of an imaginary creature. After gluing that to their paper, they had to invent the rest of the animal, making decisions about size, texture, personality, and mobility.
