Title: Fossils
Url: http://www.teachersdomain.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.earthsys.fossilc...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Paleontologists seldom have the good fortune to find a complete set of remains of an ancient organism that is wholly intact. For instance, the discovery of a frozen woolly mammoth carcass, preserved hair and all, was a truly rare event. More common are discoveries of incomplete remains, such as bones, teeth, or hair, and trace fossils, such as footprints or leaf impressions, which indicate an organism once existed even though its actual remains have not been found. This slide presentation reveals the variety of forms that fossils take, as well as examples of the kinds of life whose remains have been preserved. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
