Title: Fossils: An Ancient Sea in Indiana
Url: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.earthsys.borde...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Paleontologists have been remarkably successful in determining what earlier life forms looked like, as well as how they probably behaved when alive. This interactive feature illustrates a slab of rock containing fossils of several types of creatures that once inhabited the Borden Sea, over 300 million years ago in what is now central Indiana. Clicking on highlighted fossils accesses animations of what they may have looked like in life, along with a brief description of the organism. Reconstructions such as these have given scientists insight into evolutionary processes and trends. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
