Looking for a fun way for students to show what they know about fossils and the process of fossilization? This comic strip activity is a great way for students to show their knowledge.
The first page includes directions that tell students who to complete the 8-slide comic. It includes eight required vocabulary terms to use in their comic which include: fossil. fossilization, paleontologist, sediment, compression, buried, organism, and minerals. There is also a rubric you can use to grade the assignment.
The second page is a series of eight comic slides that include a photo and caption. It also has room for them to add their name and a title to the comic.
I use this activity every year after students have learned about fossils. The comic allows students to creatively show their teacher that they understand the process of fossilization. It could also be used as an assessment. Students really enjoy making comics and I'm always impressed to see the stories they tell! You can also post them around your room for others to enjoy.
