Description:

This multi-part activity introduces students to the concept of ontogeny by focusing on human growth series (for relevancy and to help students understand what an ontogenetic series is) and then dinosaur growth series to help students understand how we know what we know about dinosaurs and how we learn from fossils. Students practice observation and description of fossil features and then analyze these observations to summarize growth and development trends. Students may also attempt to infer behavior based on trends observed in growth series.
