Gutsy Girls Go For Science: Paleontologists

Who were the first people to walk upright? What kind of life existed millions of years ago? How have organisms changed through the eons? These are the kinds of questions that keep paleontologists awake at night! In Gutsy Girls Go for Science: Paleontologists, readers meet five female paleontologists who made breakthrough discoveries of ancient life from millions of years ago, including Mary Anning, Mignon Talbot, Tilly Edinger, Zofia Kielan-Jaworowska, and Mary Leakey. These women all led fascinating lives while working in the field and in the lab, often facing challenges because of their gender and race.

Through hands-on STEM projects such as creating a paleontology diorama, modeling an excavation, preparing specimens and finding clues in teeth, kids gain critical thinking skills just like the ones necessary to succeed in the field. Full-color pages full of fascinating facts about women paleontologists will get kids curious about just what lies underneath their feet! This book from the Gutsy Girls Go For Science series brings ancient prehistory to vivid life.
