This product is fully aligned with NGSS:
3-LS4-1 Biological Evolution: Unity and diversity. Fossils provide evidence about the types of organisms that lived long ago and also about the nature of their environments. Students identify and analyze pictures and charts showing the change in fossils over time and will make the connection that scientists know that environments change according to the fossils they find.
4-ESS1-1 Earth's Place in the Universe. Local, regional, and global patterns of rock formations reveal changes over time due to Earth forces, such as earthquakes. The presence and location of certain fossil types indicate the order in which rock layers were formed.
MS-LS4-2 Biological Evolution:unity and Diversity
Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships
– Analyzing and interpreting data as well as obtaining, evaluating and communicating data.
Patterns, cause and effect, and scale, proportion and quantity.
