The activity should begin with a brief review of scale, maps, how to use a grid in sketching, and the importance of field notes in science. Students are provided with a dead animal (roadkill) and some means of determining scale (meter sticks laid next to the animal). They sketch the animal, locating and labeling the major bones and bone groups. Students answer a series of questions designed to help them notice taphonomic features of the carcass. They are challenged to come up with the series of steps from death to burial to fossilization for the animal.
