I'm Learning About Fossils


This book which is aimed at kindergarten through 7th grade covers geology, geography, palaeontology, science amidst other lessons in which there is a focus on critical thinking skills, vocabulary, writing skills, comprehension and more.


The study of fossils entails at least five scientific disciplines: earth science, palaeontology, geography, biology, and geology. Each of these disciplines involves a unique content area as well as the development of particular intellectual skills. This unit helps teachers sort and organize the most important ideas in this rich scientific area. Detailed lesson plans serve as ways to pass these ideas on to very young students as well as older students. Comprehensive teacher/parent notes have been included which document in enormous detail the journey of the earth throughout the various Eras or Timelines. Comprehensive activities for learners have been included, and should be adapted to the age of the learner.


Due to the vast amount of information available, we have provided extensive notes in an endeavour to assist the educator in creating lesson plans. While notepages, handouts and activity sheets are included we have not burdened this book with excessive notepages. We would recommend rather that multiple copies be made of the pages required. Lessons should be adjusted and adapted to suit the age of the learner.


The contents of this book enable the educator to prepare lessons for learners from Kindergarden/Grade1 through Grade 7 – even older children. We stress again that every child develops at his or her own pace and whilst some children may find the lessons fairly simple and straightforward other children may require a little more time and explanation. We encourage “children developing at their own pace”. If a lesson appears too complex for a child, it is very easily “downgraded” or simplified to the child’s comfort level of understanding.

Impressive! I love this unit study. I often refer to it. This is an excellent resource for teaching about eras, geological time, and fossils. The information included in the teacher notes is extensive. It is well organized. The pictures are beautiful. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
