Alberta's fossil heritage

In this two-part critical challenge, students use criteria to determine if the Royal Tyrrell Museum was appropriately named after Joseph Tyrrell, in light of the significance of Alberta's fossil heritage and the work done by the museum. Students then discuss who should own rare fossils and sacred objects found in the ground, considering what would be fair to everyone, as well as the importance of the object to various groups.
