Fossils finds guides students through a variety of hands-on activities to demonstrate how palaeontologists use clues from the past to learn about ancient life. During this workshop students will:
- Recognize fossils and characterize their preservation type.
- Describe the process of fossilization from “death to discovery.”
- Illustrate the principles of relative dating using sketches of rock layers.
- Identify geologic time periods based on fossil evidence.
Students will touch and handle REAL fossils and visit with George, British Columbia’s ONLY, fully-articulated dinosaur! This workshop lasts approximately one hour and is appropriate for grades 4 and up.
