PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an interactive activity meant to generate interest in paleontology and the geologic time scale. Students use common house hold items to create a "stata" or rock layer model complete with fossils. Students can either make a classwide "strata" model or make models per individual group. This activity is written for a classwide demo, but simply increasing the materials will make it possible to be done by several groups.

In addition, students will be investigating binomial nomenclature and the process for naming new fossil species.

A true paleontology activity, written by a paleontologist!
