Week of 12/8

This week’s learning targets in science:

4.3.A.a   Identify fossils as evidence of some types of organisms (e.g., dinosaurs, trilobites, mammoths, giant tree ferns) that once lived in the past,  and have since become extinct, have similarities with and differences from organisms living today

5.2.D.b  Use rock and fossil evidence to make inferences about the age, history and changing life forms and environment of the Earth (i.e., changes in successive layers of sedimentary rock and fossils contained within them, similarities between fossils in different geographic locations, similarities between fossils and organisms present today, fossils of organisms indicating changes in climate, fossils of extinct organisms)
