Dinosaurs - Lesson 3: Fossils
ACTIVITY: Fossil Hunting

The students use new terminology to describe remains of dinosaurs and other prehistoric life.

Each student group makes a chart to record where to look for fossils. The types of fossils may be actual bones, fossilized plants, and casts or prints of animals. The students make drawings of any of the fossils or tools they want to list.
