Today, students wrapped up their work on the Construction/Analysis of the Fossil Record (analyzed a fictitious organism). We have discussed the geologic time scale (history of the earth) and are now wrapping up details on how we are able to develop such a surprisingly complete history based n observations we gather from the rock record, fossil record, ice core samples, etc. We will continue with the importance/use of the fossil record as we move into our Life Science standards (reproduction, inherited traits, natural selection....).
