NOEL KING, HOST:
Good Morning. I am Noel King. A fifth grade teacher in Missouri, Samantha Brown, learned that one of her students was a Jurassic Park fan. Most of the class hadn’t seen the movie, but by the time they did the kids naturally became obsessed with Jeff Goldblum. Ms. Brown began giving out writing, math, and art projects on Goldblum. The children’s parents then sent a letter to the actor, and he replied.
