Please see my corresponding listing:

for enhancement of this art lesson.
Note: Use of any copyrighted images, artists' photos or artwork is for students' enhancement of their Art History and appreciation of Art, in accordance with Fair Use in Education.
Note, I have simplified the Guidelines and did not require the "scientific name" only Kingdom, Phylum and Class. As this is an introduction, if you want to add other items, please feel free to do so!
This is very detailed art lesson, calling for specific observation skills. This is not an open-ended drawing task. However, at the end of the lesson, you could encourage students to be creative with fossils and create a different type of imaginative art work!
