6th Grade: 11-27 Homework
Extinction and Fossils During the long history of life on Earth, many organisms have become extinct. Scientists have been able to learn a lot about many of these organisms because of the fossils they left behind.
In this investigation, you will learn about an extinct organism whose fossils have been discovered in the USA or Canada ( examples of states are Montana, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming or Canada )
This is a Pair project to be completed with a partner!
Your Goal is to choose an extinct organism whose fossils have been discovered in one of these states Montana, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming or Canada and to research and present information about that organism.
To complete this project you must
• research an extinct organism whose fossils have been found in one of the states or countries.
• identify the environment that the organism probably lived in
• describe what may have led to the organism's extinction
• create a way of displaying your findings to the class on posters, booklets, and three-dimensional displays
Begin by choosing an extinct organism whose fossils have been discovered in Montana, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming or Canada .
Then find the information you need about the organism. Natural history museums and the Internet are good sources for identifying fossils found in Montana, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming or Canada and for finding answers to your questions.
Finally, decide how you will present that information to your class. Some possibilities include posters, booklets, and three-dimensional displays.
