The Earth buries its past. Living things that die and then slowly become part of the Earth are called fossils. This is where the skills of a paleontologist come into play. Their job is to find fossils and study them in order to make sense of what was going on here on Earth for billions of years before there were ever human beings. Learn all about the fossil record, the amazing discoveries and where they were found, and what it takes to become one of these amazing scientists. Put on your gloves and get ready to dig into the world of paleontology! This title will allow students to identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to identify past life of animals or human existence.
