Jurassic Park Insects
Graff, Robert
Arts & Activities, v145 n5 p24-25 Jun 2009
This lesson begins with a discussion on prehistoric times and how most life forms have either become extinct or have evolved into something people see in the environment today. Most of the conversation revolves around dinosaurs or animals on the endangered species list, such as the panda or polar bear. The author directed the conversation to include insects and how a movie they all know, "Jurassic Park," created a wild scenario of bringing back extinct species through captured DNA from prehistoric fossilized amber. This project creates a wonderfully exciting atmosphere where even the least imaginative student can excel. The results are proof of the excitement.
