Description

Our Fossils lesson plan prepares students to define fossil, compare and contrast types of fossils, and explain fossil formation. During this lesson, students are asked to cut apart each of the given paper images and names of fossils, match the image to the correct name, and glue them onto a poster, including additional information they found from doing research on the internet. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define fossil, compare and contrast types of fossils, and explain fossil formation.

fossils great resources

I have not used it yet. I do not always use the lesson plan but love the resources that come with the material. I have always seen a reading section with it and that is not always easy to find at least not something short. The question and answer are always great to check for understanding.

Students enjoyed the interactive fossil matching activity. They were able to learn about the various kinds of fossils and then answer questions about them. Great resource.
