      • Why are fossils so important and what do they teach us about history?
    • Why I choose my topic?
      • I choose my topic because I wanted to learn more about history and fossils, and how they find fossils.
    • What I knew about the topic?
      • I knew that some fossils are sometimes hard to find, I think there hard to find because fossils are all over the world.
    • LUCY
      • In 1974 a skeleton was found, the bones were female bones, scientists named her (Lucy).
      • Scientists suspect that she fell in a lake or river and drowned.

      • Scientists found a new skeleton, this skeleton was from another group.
      • Scientists named the skeleton ‘’Neantherdal Man’’ after the valley in which the skeleton had been found.
    • What is a Fossil?
      • A fossil can be footprints, bones, and a remnant or trace of a plant or an animal that lived long ago.
    • What can Fossils tell us?
      • A fossil can tell us the age of the rocks in which they were found.
      • Fossils can even tell us about Earth’s movement.
    • Questions I Still Have
      • How do scientists know about fossils?
      • Do scientists go all over the world to find fossils?
      • When scientists are finished with the fossil do they put in the museum?
