So...Where Did They Go?

Prepare to publish a newspaper! Use books from your library or search the Internet to determine possible reasons that the dinosaurs may have become extinct. When you have one or more reasons do the following:

    2. Prepare a newspaper article with your questions and what you think the answers are.
    3. List questions that you do not think can be answered.
    4. Prepare a drawing to go along with your newspaper story!
