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.
