Fossil Lab demo VIDEO
The Fossil Lab LITE is a free, limited version of the full version Fossil Lab. This LITE version works just like the full version but limits you to 5 of the 28 lab stations. All of the reference pages are available in the LITE version but the Student activity pages are not included in the LITE version.
The Fossil Lab introduces the concept of fossilization and helps students understand the various ways in which fossils can form. The main focus of the lab is with index fossils and how they are useful in understanding the diversity of life on Earth and the environmental and physical changes that have taken place throughout Earth’s geologic past. The Fossil Lab also allows students to explore many interesting topics based on the latest research including the extinction of dinosaurs, comparison of dinosaurs to modern day birds, and the effects of continental drift on climate and natural habitats during the past 65 million years.
The full version is a 119 page hyperlinked PDF document that guides students through the investigation of 33 important index fossils. In addition to this, 24 pages of printable activities and answer keys are included in separate PDF documents. The activities include a 6 page Fossil Lab answer sheet and an 8 page Index Fossil activity with a 4 page Geologic Time Scale and fossil images to cut out and place on the timeline. See link to demo video above.
