This sourcebook prepares students for a visit to the "Prehistoric Journey" exhibit at the Denver Museum of Natural History. The exhibit opened October 23, 1995, and offered a dramatic exploration of 3.5 billion years of life on Earth. Dioramas and "enviroramas" depict seven critical points in life's history. In addition to the chronological presentation of life eras, the sourcebook presents activities, synopses of exhibits and tours, additional teacher resources, and suggestions for planning a visit to the museum. Articles and student handouts are included. (EH)
