With this kit students examine the fauna of Georgia at three different points in history: 14,000 years ago, 1,000 years ago, and modern day, based on casts of fossil teeth. Students will use identification cards to help them identify the teeth, compile faunal lists for Georgia for each of the three time periods, and hypothesize on the causes of the observed changes in fauna.
The kit includes the following:
- 11 casts of fossil teeth, color-coded by age
- Seven identification cards
- Storage box
Cost: $30 plus shipping.
The handouts linked below (pdf format) include the teacher’s guide, student handout, sample answers, and correlations with the Next Generation Science Standards.
