: Poster Activity
Let your students show what they know about fossils using this 8.5 x 11 "All About Fossils" poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The fossils poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color and with their illustration of a fossil they observed.
If you have read about fossils, watched a video about fossils, or done fossil experiments, this would be a great follow-up activity for reflection. Also, it is a great review before test time. Plus, use it to see how well students are understanding concepts taught in class.
You could also use as a center activity or even as morning work. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
The sections for the students to fill in are:
*Place for name
*A fossil is....
*______ are scientists that study fossils.
