Fossils: Tales from the Past is a worksheet set that uses key vocabulary and presents an overview on the formation of fossils, types of fossils, and fossil excavation. Vocabulary introduced includes paleontologist, petrified, excavation, impression, cast, mold, and trace fossils. A teacher page is included with the answers to the student pages. This fill in the blank worksheet matches the fossil power point that is available separately. It can be used to introduce this topic or to review important facts.
A one page student test is also included which gives 11 fill in the blanks and a summary question.
The student pages are formatted to easily cut and paste into an interactive science notebook (composition book).
My students are very engaged by the use of the power point with the fill in the blank student pages. It is an easy to use format for students and teacher.
