Today my colleagues in science education shared some resources for teaching about fossils- and I thought I would pass them along. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has a set of fossil lessons designed to supplement instructional materials such as Science and Technology for Children (STC) Rocks and Minerals and FOSS Earth Materials. These supplemental lessons are designed to align with Washington State science standards but could be a useful resource for other states as well.
The Cruising the Fossil Freeway website through the Burke Museum is another resource for fossil lessons/materials related to Washington State. You will find video clips of fossil exploration in Washington locales and interactive maps.
