Digging Up Dinosaurs
This is a sixth grade science unit. It was established with two
purposes in mind. The first is to create an internet unit that will
enrich the ScottForesman Science unit, "Digging for Clues." The
second is to establish a simple introduction to internet usage.
Ties to the Curriculum
This internet unit would fall within the Nebrtaska Science
Frameworks. The Topic strand would be "Diversity" with the conceptual
threads in the middle grade level of "Patterns of Change," "Systems
& Interactions", and "Scale & Structure."
Links, data, Illustrations and Images
The worksheet will present a way of assessing the ability of the
student to obtain information from the internet.
The individual project will allow the student to create a
slideshow with their research. The slideshow will be evaluated for
content and creativity.
