The unit ends with a quiz (editable) in google forms. 

This resource is aligned completely with NGSS  MS-LS4-1. Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on finding patterns of changes in the level of complexity of anatomical structures in organisms and the chronological order of fossil appearance in the rock layers.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include the names of individual species or geological eras in the fossil record.] MS-LS4-2.

And Utah SEEd Standard 7.5.2 Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth, under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past. (LS4.A, ESS2.E)

Concepts Include:

  • Geologic Column
  • Strata
  • Stratigraphy
  • Sedimentary rock
  • How fossils are formed
  • Cast fossils
  • Mold fossils
  • True form fossils
  • Trace fossils
  • The fossil species
  • Change of a species over time
  • Extinct organisms
  • Living fossils
  • Change in the landscape over time

This resource is in Google Apps.  You will need access to google and your students will need access to google in order to use the drag and drop and interactive activities.  Some districts do not allow students to use google activities.  It is your responsibility to make sure students can access these Google materials before purchasing.  You can add it to your own personal drive, but students will still need access to google in order for them to function properly.
