|Fossilization and Adaptation Activities in Paleontology|
This activity introduces students to the concepts of time, past life, and fossils. After completing these exercises students will be able to evaluate the importance of fossils to our knowledge of past life, identify conditions necessary for fossilization, construct a possible scenario for formation of fossils, understand how organisms are adapted to their environments, and understand the relationships of modern and ancient communities with their environments.
