Evolution Revolution

on February 13, 2013

Today 2nd graders played the role of paleotologists in science class.  We examined different fossil specimans that were millions of years old.  Cool!  Students tried to identify the different fossil specimans looking at the shape, size, and design.  We discussed the many extinct creatures that evolved in the early sea using ancient creature cards.  Students were inspired to create a large geological timeline in the hallway and draw the many creatures found in each geological era.  Next week we make fossils in the classroom!

    I have to say, reading through all these projects you did is so much fun! So glad you are showing them fossils and talking about evolution with the younger kids!

      We are now making a large geological time line on the hallway in front of the science room. Students from all the grades are drawing ancient creatures in the different eras. Check it out when you get a chance. thanks for your support.
