Laraba, Peter; Wickland, Thomas J.
The activities presented in this book, designed to help 4th through 8th grade instructors teach about the history of life, help students prepare for a visit to a museum exhibit on life through time. The pre- and post-visit activities as well as the in-museum activities help students prepare for and enjoy their 4.5 billion year trip through time at The Field Museum in Chicago. Activities pertain to words from the past, developing a timeline, comparative anatomy, developing a museum visit journal, prehistoric bone structure, and prehistoric motion. Reading lists for both teachers and students are also included. (DDR)
