NC Standard Course of Study:

R1 – Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. (Students read text, view graphics and animations that accompany a scientific mystery. The theatrical skits, texts and graphical animations give clues to how to solve the mystery.)

R2 – Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas. (Evidence for solving the science mystery is given on a large screen video during the show. Details given found in the theatrical skits, animations and graphics help the students to use analytical skills to solve the science mystery.)

R7 – Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.* (The set includes a large video screen with projected animation and graphics and sound to help students understand facts about prehistoric animals and environments.)
