Learn about the different types of fossils
Select and study a group of organisms in depth
Prepare a virtual poster session to be shared with your classmates detailing the
biology and evolution of the group of fossils you have chosen. An alternate to this
activity is to prepare a poster of a particular period or epoch of geologic time.
This lab should take 4-5 hours to complete.
Recording Your Observations:
Download the lab report for this lab. rtf or pdf
Visit http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/paleo/fossils/, and read about the types of
fossils and fossil preservation.
Visit a number of websites (a few starters are listed below) that deal with the
topic of the history of life on earth. Gather (and cite!) information and images
to allow you to prepare a virtual poster session.
In your poster session presentation you will need to detail the classification of
the group of creatures whose fossil history you are detailing. Include the time of
first occurrence, time of maximum diversity, and whether or not the group is
extinct or extant.
