Connecticut in The Mesozoic World
- Item #: 135
The Mesozoic Era began and ended with terrifying events of vast volcanic eruptions and meteor impacts so powerful that much of life on the land and in the ocean was extinguished. These cataclysmic events helped shape our landscape. Their results are evident across the state yet today, well preserved and in locations which can be easily visited. Dr. J.G. McHone has spelled out the story of the different Periods within this Era in this profusely illustrated, well written text. Included, and comprising a major second half to this information, is the CD-ROM. Here is contained information about the actual field locations where you can experience these Mesozoic sites for yourself. Lesson plans and other teacher materials for using the field sites are included as well. A great package of geologic history. Full color, 40 pages, CD-ROM.
