ASSIGNMENT FOR LAB#1: PART I.
DUE: 02/08/01 |
When you have surfed
the DinoCore website to see what it
entails, I would like you to email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" a response to the
questions below. The idea here is not to spend time researching the answers to these
questions, but to consider each question in light of what you know right now about
dinosaurs. Your responses must reach me by 5 PM, Thursday, Feb. 8, so that we can move on to
Here are the questions:
1. Are dinosaurs real or do you think they are something in some way
invented by scientists, movie producers, scriptwriters etc.?
2. Upon what sources of information is your current knowledge of
dinosaurs based (books, movies, TV, internet)?
3. Do you think these sources are authoritative?
4. What kinds of animals were dinosaurs?
5. When did they live?
6. Did humans (e.g. our ancestors)and dinosaurs ever interact; did they
ever run across each other in the course of their daily lives?
7. Why aren't there any dinosaurs now?
ASSIGNMENT FOR LAB #1: PART II. DUE: 02/12/01
I will comment
on your response to the above questions by return email, and probably ask you to revise
your ideas in some way. If so, your response will be due by 5 PM, Monday, Feb. 12.
