  • Class Activity
    The Great Fossil Find
    Lesson Plan
     
    Activity
    Students are taken on an imaginary fossil hunt. Following a script read by the teacher, students "find" (remove from envelope) paper "fossils" of some unknown creature, only a few at a time. Each time, they attempt to reconstruct the creature, and each time their interpretation tends to change as new pieces are "found". This lesson is great for students to understand that science is tentative and as new evidence is revealed, ideas may change.
