    • State the question(s) you selected to research.
    • Post a synopsis, based on the results of your research, the answer(s) to the question(s) selected.  In the synopsis, include a brief explanation of the significance of the knowledge you learned from your research on historical geology and cite the reference source(s) of your research.
