Program Description
Presented with wacky animals and stories of hands-on research -- in the form of a snake dissection -- students discover the fun side of research! From nonfiction author Heather L. Montgomery, students learn that even professional authors get assignments. They witness learn Heather's 3 rules of research: 
1) Don't Do BORING!
2) Questions are the key
3) Zoom in or zoom out to avoid getting stuck in a rut.

Students should bring paper, pencil, and something to bear down on.  Presented with odd bones, flesh and other odd natural artifacts, their fingers will be itching to create their own list of research questions!
Program Format
1. Photos of bizarre artifacts from nature hook students and get them bubbling with questions.
2. The author will share the story (and images) of how research questions led her to dissect a rattle snake as a part of her research process.
3. Magnified images prompt students to think by analogy.
4. Faced with odd natural artifacts, students will generate their own list of research questions.
5. Q & A as time allows.
1. Students will generate questions.
2. Students will begin the inquiry process.
3. Students will make analogies.
