Fossil Hunters at Work

The bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex have been discovered on a mountainside. What tools do the fossil hunters use to dig the bones from the rock? Why do they cover the fossils in a plaster cast? And how will they transport a giant T. rex skull (that weighs as much as a rhino) to a museum so it can be studied? This book band green reader takes dino fans behind-the-scenes to learn how palaeontologists find, dig up and study fossils. It features repetitive and predictable text, high-frequency and familiar sight words, close text and picture matches and lots of labels.
