WELCOME TO FOSSIL FORENSICS!
In Fossil Forensics, students become prehistoric experts when given a collection of ancient fossils! Students then analyze, compare, and make evolutionary and ancestral hypotheses about these skeletal systems. Using the collection board, arrange your fossils next to one another and make connections based on structure, characteristics, and make educated guesses on where fossils originated from or were related to.
HOW TO ACCESS
Fossil Forensics EDU includes access to the game, standards-aligned curriculum, and teacher dashboard for student progress tracking through a Filament Learning account.
KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES
-Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past.
-Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships.
