'Class'ification

Rating
0.0 stars

Students are introduced to the concept of taxonomy, and categorization of organisms based on Carl Linnaeus' system of classification. The class watches the Taxonomy video from shapeoflife.org and reviews the concept of classification. Students then "classify" themselves. Then, the class is divided into groups to begin classifying themselves. Along the way, students are researching their classification level, and recording derived characteristics that separate them from other groups within that level.

A Paleontologist Searches for Bilateral Ancestors: Who Was "Hunter Eve"?

Rating
0.0 stars

Students will investigate the tracks and traces left by modern animals and determine what they can learn about an animal from its tracks. Then students will consider what it takes to be a hunter and what kind of evidence can be used to figure out what animal was the first hunter. Discussion questions included.

The Secrets of Fossils

Rating
0.0 stars

Students assess evolutionary links and evidence from comparative analysis of the fossil record and modern day organisms. Using the information about the Cambrian Explosion, they explore theories about how and why organisms divesrsified then hypothesize what evidence might be helpful to connect fossil organisms to show evolutionary connections.
