Activity #90 Figuring out Fossils

During today's block as well as tomorrow's block, students did Activity #90 which was called "Figuring out Fossils." Student had to examine 8 different types of fossils. They had to make a sketch each fossil and make a prediction about which type of species each fossil may have been. Students also had to decide what type of habitat the species may have lived in and what type of food it may have eaten. They also had to predict which fossil was the oldest, youngest, and related to other fossils. They then had to reflect on what fossils tell us about species in the past who are now extinct. Overall students did a great job working with the 8 different fossils.

Homework: Finish fossil sketches!
