Product Description

Engage your students in six fun activity stations that are designed to give students an enriching experience in supporting NGSS standards. Each station provides students with an interesting look at fossils and what they tell us about the past! These stations fit with the unit; All About Fossils, a complete NGSS unit.

Station topics include:

1. Glossopteris Trees, Proof of an Ancient World - Students analyze two different maps in earth's history to see what these tree fossils tell us about earth's ancient landmasses

2. Identifying Dinosaurs from Fossil Skeletons - Students matching dinosaur fossils with pictures of dinosaurs before explaining evidence of each match

3. Fossil Layers - Students place pictures of fossils in the correct layer of earth based on time periods and fossil ages

4. How Feathers Evolved - Students watch a short video on feather evolution and evidence that some dinosaurs had feathers

5. Making Mold and Cast Fossils - Students create both mold and cast fossils out of dough or clay

6. Puzzling Fossils - Students become paleontologists as they attempt to complete a puzzle piece with only the information around it. This shows students how paleontologists must figure out fossil skeletons when pieces are missing

Stations can be used as a supplement to your instruction. NGSS standards covered are:

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

Earth's Place in the Universe

Earth's Systems
