In this Mystery, students investigate the hypothesis that an asteroid impact caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.

In the activity, Create a Dinosaur Food Web, students use cards and construction paper connectors to create a food web from the time of the dinosaurs. Using this model, they follow the flow of energy through the food web and figure out why dinosaurs went extinct but some other animals survived.
