In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are intuitive. They read about paleontologist Barnum Brown in the book Barnum’s Bones: How Barnum Brown Discovered the Most Famous Dinosaur in the World. After reading, students assume the role of paleontologist as they assemble simulated dinosaur bones and think about how scientists determine logical explanations for fossils they find. This selection highlights the practice of planning and carrying out investigations, and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
