Worksheet. Students will define fossils and explain why most organisms will not turn into a fossil.
Illustrate and label an example of fossil-filled sedimentary rocks.
Show how older fossils usually are deeper and indicate the relative age of fossils. Differentiate the process of permineralization and carbonization.
Hypothesize how it was possible for scientists to have found fossils of sea creatures on some of the highest mountains in the world. (How did the fossils get there?)
Evaluate how fossils support the theory of evolution by natural selection.
Answer key included. Check out my power point on TPT for a resource.
