Ch 1: Scientific Method Assignment
Using the Dinosaur article included in the Chapter 1 Table of Contents, answer the following questions and submit your answers using the “submission” button at the bottom of this page. When completing your submission: please number your responses and do NOT include the questions (I will mark off if the questions are included). Lastly, do NOT include attachments as your work will NOT be graded.

“A”-level responses are more than 300 words.
