In this imaginary fossil hunt, students learn about the uncertainty of science and the fact that, as new evidence is revealed, ideas may change. As they follow a script read by the teacher, students find (remove from envelope) paper fossils of some unknown creature, a few at a time. Each time, they attempt to reconstruct the creature and each time their interpretation tends to change as new pieces ... Full description.

This overview of how microfossils are used in the exploration for oil uses both drawings and photomicrographs of microfossils to illustrate the types of fossils that are employed in the search for oil. There are also diagrams to indicate how the identification of the strata by microfossil content is then used to locate the petroleum. Active links and additional references are included for further ... Full description.
