Finding the Crater

Summary

This hands-on activity requires students to “visit” different K-T boundary sites.

This hands-on activity requires students to “visit” different K-T boundary sites, evaluate the evidence at each site, find these sites on a map, and predict where the crater is located. It tests a diverse set of skills, including mapping, mathematical scaling, and interpretation of mixed visual, graphic, and textual evidence.
