Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life

Students explain how the earth makes fossils and how dinosaur remains become fossils. In this Bringing Dinosaurs Back to Life lesson plan, students solve paleo-puzzles which ask students to solve problems as if they were paleontologists. Students also decide where to dig, read rocks, clean fossils, and preserve bones. Lastly students create a fossilized dinosaur remains landscape for others to excavate.
