G-9 DISCOVERING DINSOAURS (PreK), (K-2)
This hands-on lesson uses visual materials, fossil replicas, fossils and scale models to show the characteristics distinguishing dinosaurs, their world and how we know about them.
G-10 DISCOVERING FOSSILS (3), (4-6)
This is a hands-on lesson uses fossils and fossil replicas to teach an appreciation of fossils within their environment and how scientists identify features in order to group them. It is designed to develop an understanding of the process of fossilization and the concept of geologic time.
G-13 DISCOVERING PALEONTOLOGY (7-12)
A rudimentary grasp of fossilization and classification is required for this advanced hands-on program. The purpose of this lesson is to develop an understanding of correlation, stratigraphy and the interpretation of ancient environments through the use of rocks, fossils, charts and maps. Different lithologies and fossil assemblages will be compared and contrasted.
