How would your class react to five Video Adventures entitled Introducing Earth's History, Blue Hole, Burgess Shale, Mysteries of Extinction, and Plate Tectonics? They can marvel at what made Earth and dive into one of the world's largest cave systems. Let them create multimedia projects on mountain building and erosion, or radioactive dating techniques. What will they research in the Library? Fossils, the evolution of life, or dinosaur extinction theories?
