These are hands-down my ABSOLUTE favorite dinosaur fossil lessons of all time. This is a 3 lessons in one package.
**Paleontologist Poem and Text Dependent Questions
**An Article about Roy Chapman (the Indiana Jones of Paleontology)
and his discovery of the first fossil eggs in the Mobi Desert
**Text dependent questions.
**A comic strip activity to retell the Adventures
of Roy Chapman.
** My favorite hands-on fossil measuring, recording, and predicting activity.
Example work and keys are provided for everything.
******PLEASE NOTE: THIS MAY REQUIRE AN ADDITIONAL PURCHASE OF EITHER 2-3 CHEAP SHOWER CURTAINS OR FLAT SHEETS IN ADDITION TO MEASURING TAPES *********
Large poster paper may work, however I haven't tried it.
You will use these materials to cut out the shapes of both VERY large and VERY small fossils.
The students will love rotating around the classroom measuring, recording, and predicting what part of a dinosaur each fossil belongs to.
