Description

Science Differentiated Passages: Fossil Evidence of Past Environments

⭐️ These science differentiated passages focus on analyzing and interpreting data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago. Examples of data could include the type, size, and distribution of fossil organisms. Examples of fossils and environments could include marine fossils found on dry land, tropical plant fossils found in Arctic areas, and fossils of extinct organisms. Assessment does not include the identification of specific fossils or present plants and animals. Assessment is limited to major fossil types and relative ages.

 

⭐️ This unit is perfect for 3rd grade. It was created to align with 3-LS4-1 but can be used in any classroom to teach students about fossil evidence of past environments.
