Use fossilized remains to link extinct organisms with their modern day descendants!
Your students will learn to apply the key geological concept —“The present is the key to the past”! They’ll do so by comparing the fossils of Brachiopods, Ammonites and Trilobites with modern organisms. In the process, they’ll gain insight into the relationship between past and present life on Earth and how fossils can be used to trace its history. Additionally, your class will explore the evolution of birds by analyzing the Archaeopteryx fossil. They’ll then use their results to determine the potential links between birds and dinosaurs.
