Studying The Fossil Record

Yesterday, we started the process of investigating what fossils can teach us about life on Earth. Below this post is the information from yesterday. Your goal is to use evidence you have found to answer the Big Idea Question today:

How do Fossils show that the Earth, and the Life-Forms on Earth, have changed over long periods of time?

When you have completed that activity, you can take part in the going further activity, A virtual adventure as an archeologist.

Adventures at Dry Creek

As a part of the adventure you will write small entries in a journal. To Access your Journal, use the School Name “Cathedral” when prompted. Your Journal entries will be saved and shared with me so I can monitor your progress. The journal and “special assignment” is worth credit and will apply directly to your Evolution Final Project at the end of the Unit. This is not a required assignment, but rather a chance to go deeper into the content if you are interested in it.
