Product Description
During this unit students will learn what Amber is and how it forms. They will use a digital microscope (digiscope), a magiscope, or other magnifier to observe and identify insects trapped and fossilized in the ancient Amber. Then they will compare the ancient insects to modern insects as they look for similarities and differences. After researching (computer and library field guides) to identify the insects, students will construct a data table and a Venn Diagram. At the end of the unit, students will work collaboratively with other students to produce an original presentation showing what they have learned during this unit.
