9/14/17: Bones Telling Stories

BELLRINGER: Read the following facts and try to think of the profession the facts are describing.

CLUES:

  • My job involves digging for fossils, performing experiments in labs, and writing about my findings.
  • Part of my job is making educated guesses about what extinct animals and plants looked like.
  • Some of the animals I study were HUGE. Some were as small as bacteria!
  • The name of my profession comes from the name of a prehistoric age, but I actually study multiple ages, not just the one that is my profession’s namesake.
  • One topic we study is how and why humans are different from animals.
