Science Tasks with Otis & Flask were designed as centers to reinforce science concepts in grades 3-6. These centers include Teacher Background information, Task Cards for each center that provide information for the student (including "I can" statements), photocopy-ready student packet pages which many include student observation sheets, data sheets, student readings, vocabulary, and assessment items. An answer key is also included. Be sure to download the Teachers Guide for standards correlations.

Each center book is available to purchase as a download, or you can order all 9 center booklets and we will send you the hard copies of the booklets in a great storage box.

In the FOSSILS center:
Students will observe photos of fossils and artist rendered images of the organism. The center is designed to help students think through their understanding of present-day environments and organisms in order to make interpretations about fossils and changes that could affect an organisms survival. This science center is designed so that students use their observational data and knowledge
of modern organisms to answer a question, then they explain their thinking and check their answer. They repeat this process, each time reinforcing the content.

NOTE: **There is also a FREE web-based task download available for Fossils Center that provides center work that can occur online via interactive websites.
