Students will place imaginary fossils in sequences that show patterns of evolution or evolutionary trees. They will investigate the two major hypotheses on how evolution takes place: gradualism and punctuated equilibrium.
A logical follow up to this activity would be to have students research the fossil record of an organism they are interested in. They could draw or cut and paste off the internet an evolutionary tree for the organism.
