This Science NetLinks lesson, the second in a two-part series on fossils, explores what information can be discerned by comparing fossils to living organisms. This lesson allows students to go through an "interview" with the remains of a Protoceratops. In preparation for the interview, students first brainstorm the questions for which they would like answers and then narrow their questions to those that can really be answered by studying the Protoceratops fossils.
