This is a Montessori three part card activity that goes along with the Timeline of Life. As the students study the Timeline, they begin seeing the first life forms evolve during the Cambrian Period such as the trilobite, anomalocaris, and jellyfish. These cards allow them to get to know some of the creatures better.
The cards include:
-Pictures of the creatures with and without name labels
-Information cards stating the time period the animal evolved in, its size, and a fast fact.
-Animals included (9 in all): trilobite, anomalocaris, jellyfish, sidneyia, charniodiscus, sanctacaris, ottoia, vauxia, and naraoia.
I also purchased 3D renditions of the animals for the students to match to the cards from the TOOB company on Amazon. It may be ordered here:
