There’s a better way to learn and experience the world of science. Take part in interactive, highly visual activities that let you manipulate objects in a virtual environment to learn all about them.
Examine various animal fossils and sort them based on their common characteristics. Then learn how a classification key can be used to identify the fossils of an animal’s teeth, jaws, scales, or vertebrae.
• Identify the different characteristics of fossils from dinosaurs, bony fish, and other animals.
• Find out how a classification key is useful in identifying fossils.
• See why the study of fossil records indicates the evolution of organisms over time.
• Consider the evolution of birds from flightless dinosaurs to the modern birds of today.
• Learn about the various types of fossils and the ways in which organisms can be fossilized.
• Discover the type of rock in which fossils usually form.
• Understand why scientists examine homologies, biogeography, and the fossil record to explore common ancestries among organisms.
