This worksheet is designed for Biology or Earth and Space Science classes discussing fossils in-depth. Students are assigned an evolutionary lineage (e.g., conifers, fishes, etc.) and use this worksheet to identify the key characteristics and three of the most important fossils for their unique group. This worksheet can be completed based on information obtained from previous lessons or through the use of personal devices (e.g., cell phones, iPads, etc.).
I did not include an Answer Key because the answers will depend on the evolutionary lineage you assign your students. For example, the answers for the "bony fishes" lineage will be different from the answers for the "cartilage fishes" lineage.
