Fossils: Tales from the Past is a power point presentation 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. This fossil power point could be used to introduce this topic or to review important facts.
Pages are presented with fill in the blanks. Pages present first with blanks, then key words are added one at a time through the presentation.
Additional materials are included under a separate title with a fill in the blank student worksheet that matches the materials in the power point and a student test. The student pages are formatted to easily cut and paste into an interactive science notebook (composition book).
