FOSSIL RECORD

INFO

Label the next two blank pages 34-35Fossil Record

Under the title, write the standard:SC.7.L.15.1 Recognize that fossil evidence is consistent with the scientific theory of evolution that living things evolved from earlier species.

PREPARE FOR LEARNING

Take a look at these images. One is a modern day dragonfly while the other is a fossil. How has today's dragonfly changed from its fossilized ancestor?

Explore: Connect Like a Scientist

You have learned about the layers of the Earth and the Law of Superposition. Scientists use Law of Superposition to build a geologic timeline of organisms known as the fossil record.

Explain Resources

Explain: Learn Like a Scientist

Use a variety of resources to explain:

  1. How does the fossil record provide evidence to support evolution?
  2. How does the Law of Superposition connect to the fossil record and evolution?
  3. Examples of how organisms have changed over time.
  4. How do scientists conduct investigations when experimentation is not an option?

A variety of fossils can be found around the world. How do scientists use these fossils to learn about the history of the earth and how organisms have evolved over time?You are going to be exploring the evolution of four different species.Create 4 boxes with the following labels:
