Publisher: Maine. Department of Conservation.
Description: In this activity, students will identify an assemblage of fossils, determine their age, evaluate the fossil population, and make some inferences about the ancient environment in which they existed. The discovery aspect of this exercise is that all of the fossils the students will find existed together in only one time period. The environment of these fossils, a fresh water lake, is ascertained from using the fossil guidebook. A student worksheet and discussion questions are provided.
