6th graders learn about Underground Astronauts

The sixth graders experienced a fascinating journey to the past through the eyes of Becca Peixotto, one of the scientists who excavated the ancient bones found in South Africa. The work these "underground astronauts" are doing may change how scientists look at the human family tree.

The students were mesmerized by Becca's presentation, and by the photo of a dinosaur tooth found during the fossil sorting part of inquiry into geologic time, using the extinction event of 65 million years ago as the frame of reference.
