This activity demonstrates to students how paleontologists put fossil evidence together allowing them to imagine what the Earth was like millions of years ago. Students are given certain fossils (drawings or real specimens) and must draw a map showing what environments were present when the fossils were living. This lesson provides all necessary worksheets as well as extension activities. Full description.
