Exploring Fossils: Clues to the Past

by  Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Program image

Fossils are clues to past environments. Take a look at specimens from our collections and see if you can identify their long-lost habitat.
Discover how fossils are formed and investigate shared characteristics of fossils
from a particular environment by utilizing the same paleontology techniques as the
experts!

Program Details

Format

• Students will be shown examples of different kinds of fossils
• Your educator will list the steps for the formation, preservation and extraction/study of fossils
• Together, the class will determine if any fossil plants or animals from the assemblages compare with present day organisms
• Your educator will explain the geologic time periods associated with the fossils being analyzed

Time is allowed for questions during and after the program is completed.

Objectives

• Define fossil and have examples of different kinds of fossils
• List the steps for the formation, preservation and extraction/study of fossils
• Analyze up to 6 assemblages of fossil plants and animals to determine ancient environments and ecosystems
• Determine if any fossil plants or animals from the assemblages compare with present day organisms
• Identify the geologic time periods associated with the fossils being analyzed
