We have continued to look at Alberta's fossil and dinosaur heritage. I read the students an article about a recent fossil discovery of a soft shelled creature similar to a lobster that was found near Banff. I wanted to show students that fossil discoveries are a current thing, that it isn't just focused around dinosaur bones and that paleontology is not dead, no pun intended! Students did two reading comprehensions, one on how glaciers have shaped the land which is significant in Alberta as well as one on different forms of fossils, like petrified wood and amber. They also finished their research on an Alberta dinosaur and began typing up a paragraph using the research they found. Lastly they created an art piece using q-tips and white glue to re-create their dinosaur skeleton!
