A few months ago
Becky O'Brien, 16, was at the beach with her two young cousins. She �(look after) them for the afternoon. While the two boys �(play) with a ball, Becky �(open) her book and �(lie down) on the sand. While she �(read), the ball �(fly) past her head and �(land) behind some rocks. 'Be careful!' she �(shout) to the boys. Then she �(get up) to find the ball. As she �(look for) the ball, she �(see) something behind one of the rocks. She �(stop) and �(look) at it closely. It was a very large tooth. She �(look) at a part of a dinosaur over 100 million years old! Later, archeologists �(remove) the dinosaur and �(take) it to a local museum.
