Choose one of three levels and take an extensive tour through the history of life and fossils. This is a very well put together site that can be used easily for more than one class time. Before letting students browse, the teacher should view the tour.
Students can create a relief sculpture of dinosaur bones with this cross-curricular activity. Where space allows, the bones can be installed as a permanent work of art, or used to simulate a paleontology "dig."
