The Fossils in the Classroom teaching kit includes a collection of fossils and supporting lesson plans that allow teachers and students hands-on experience in Paleontology. The activities are structured as classroom investigations, each with a unique theme that utilizes different fossil and cast material from the kit.

Evidence Outcomes

Students will be able to:

  • Use evidence to develop a scientific explanation for:
    • What fossils tell us about a prehistoric environment
    • What conclusions can be drawn from similarities between fossil evidence and living organisms
  • Analyze and interpret data to generate evidence about the prehistoric environment.
  • Evaluate whether reasoning and conclusions about given fossils are supported by evidence
