Extractions: Researcher Chen Junyuan of the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology claimed this find has advanced the recorded history of bilaterian fossils, or fossils characterized by bilateral symmetry in organs, by 40 million years. Officially named "Vernanimalcula guizhouena," this life-form has provided valuable evidence of genetic innovations towards bilateral symmetry. (Xinhuanet, China) You and I would have to go scuba diving to see cnidarians and sponges," said in the Magazine release. Before this discovery, the earliest bilateral fossils were mollusk-like Kimberella, Ediacaran fossils that appeared about 20 to 30 million years before the Cambrian. "These fauna were soft a lot of them were just big flat sheets with compartments," according to Bottjer. "There were probably some bilaterians around. We just don't have much of a record.

Extractions: Notes for Teacher: Until recently, dinosaurs were looked upon as sluggish, dim witted beasts dragging their tails in the swamps. With the commercialization of Jurassic Park, young people today have a very different view of dinosaur life, but what they probably do not understand is the process by which scientists have revised their interpretation of the fossil record. This unit is intended to help students engage in and appreciate the process by which we can use the fossil record to gain a better understanding of the life history of dinosaurs. Although the unit focuses on one particular group of organisms, it can serve as an introduction to the more general methods of paleontology. Moreover, it is designed to help students hone their skills in general hypothesis testing so that they will be better prepared for future inquiry into other areas of science. The unit, which I've expanded into a summer field course, does require a great deal of advanced preparation on the part of the instructor. However, tremendous resources exist for teachers to educate themselves about current trends in dinosaur paleontology, and with the help of several informative publications and videos, and the services of several excellent museums (including one accessible on the Internet), the needed background information can be gained more quickly than one might think.

Hagerman Fossil Beds Paleontology & Biostratigraphy paleontology is the study of the remains of dead things The following exercise willteach students about how Handouts/activities These are links to access the http://imnh.isu.edu/digitalatlas/teach/lsnplns/palbiolp.htm
Extractions: Stratigraphic columns are a means of presenting measured geologic sequences as a figure that is arranged with the youngest rock on top and the oldest rock on the bottom. Paleontology is the study of the remains of dead things. Fossils are found in different levels of rock. Scientists study these fossils and where they are fond in the rock layers to learn about the animal and the time it existed. The following exercise will teach students about how scientists go about finding this data. Procedure: To get there: Click on Atlas Home, Geology, Parks and Monuments, Hagerman Fossil Beds, then on Start Monument Module . Have your students explore the Hagerman Fossil Beds site and encourage them to click on the pictures. Have them complete the following worksheet. (See handout sample) Handouts/Activities:
