Название: Adventures in Paleontology: 36 Classroom Fossil Activities
Авторы: Hansen T.,, Slesnick I.
At one point or another, it seems like all students are interested in paleontology. Wonderful extinct animals like dinosaurs excite the imagination like almost nothing else. Once you have the students’ interest, you will find that a study of paleontology provides avenues of exploration into a wide variety of foundational sciences such as biology, geology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy (See Table 1). Paleontology is also an excellent way to teach to the National Science Education Standards (NRC 1996), and all of the activities in this book are aligned with one or more of the Science Content Standards for grades 5–8 (See Table 2). We use an active hands-on approach because that is the best way to learn. A great teacher I know has a sign above his desk that reads, “If they hear it, they will forget. If they see it, they will remember. If they do it, they will learn.” It is the philosophy of this book that learning through hands-on activities is the best way to integrate new knowledge.
