History of Life Lab Directions Procedures:

  1. Visit http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/paleo/fossils/  and read about the types of fossils and fossil preservation.

  2. Visit a number of websites (a few starters are listed below) that deal with the topic of the history of life on Earth. Gather (and cite!) information and images to allow you to prepare a virtual poster session.

In your chosen project form, you will need to detail the classification of the group of creatures whose fossil history you are investigating. Required elements include: the time of first occurrence, time of maximum diversity, and whether or not the group is extinct or still living today.
