Title: USGS: Education Resources for Paleontology
Url: http://geology.er.usgs.gov/paleo/eduinfo.shtml
Publisher: Geological Survey (U.S.)
Description: The United States Geological Service (USGS) has crafted this website to bring together high quality education resources in the field of paleontology. The "General Information and Teaching Sources" area of the site is a great place to start. Here, visitors will find guides to fossils and fossil collecting along with the Learning Web. This last feature is a very helpful portion of the USGS website that includes classroom activities specifically created to provide students with a basic understanding of geologic time and how fossils are made. The site also includes a number of general interest publications, such as This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics and Fossils, Rocks, and Time. The site is rounded out by a number of non-USGS resources, such as a site on the fossil record from the University of California at Berkeley.
