How can paleontological data be used to address a hypothesis? An exercise in critical thinking. part of Cutting Edge:Paleontology:Activities
Students are assigned two readings from primary source journals. Prior to class, students answer questions that accompany each reading in preparation for a classroom discussion. This particular set of readings was selected to illustrate the fact that in science we use new findings to readdress "old" questions.
