PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teacher Instructions:
1. This document is the student worksheet which they complete as they travel to the various stations ("through geologic time") and observe the changing life on Earth.
2. At each station, set out any fossils from that time period. (I use Fisher’s Advanced Fossil Collection, which contains 30 fossils plus assorted other fossils from my personal collection). The print-outs (related item) can help students to identify the fossils which they observe and read to learn more about these organisms’ lives.
3. At each station, depending on your fossils you may want to set out hand lenses or stereoscopes.
4. The lesson ALSO references an activity “Performances in Geologic Time.” I have students research the different geologic periods in groups to write skits. They all perform their skits and jot down take-away messages (brief) from each performance. This leads into the lab activity, and if you do this I recommend reminding students to bring their notes with them to each lab station!
