In this lesson, students will observe, measure, and sort tree leaves. They will examine leaves individually, in groups, and in relationship to the entire tree. As they observe attributes, they will group the leaves according to these attributes and consider any patterns that emerge. In addition, they will communicate what they have learned about leaves in quantitative terms. The activities in this ... Full description.

Paleontologists seldom have the good fortune to find a complete set of remains of an ancient organism that is wholly intact. For instance, the discovery of a frozen woolly mammoth carcass, preserved hair and all, was a truly rare event. More common are discoveries of incomplete remains, such as bones, teeth, or hair, and trace fossils, such as footprints or leaf impressions, which indicate an organism ... Full description.

In this activity, groups collect aquatic insects and animals from streams and rivers to determine the water quality. Students identify aquatic insects and animals that live in the stream or river, use a macroinvertebrate tally sheet, learn what tolerance levels different aquatic insects and animals have to water pollution, and learn about the water quality based on the type of macroinvertebrates collected. ...

Paleontologists have been remarkably successful in determining what earlier life forms looked like, as well as how they probably behaved when alive. This interactive feature illustrates a slab of rock containing fossils of several types of creatures that once inhabited the Borden Sea, over 300 million years ago in what is now central Indiana. Clicking on highlighted fossils accesses animations of ... Full description.
