Epic of Evolution  

Our Proconsul skull proved to represent a species named africanus. The forehead was rounded and smooth. The teeth were more like those of chimpanzees.

Reconstructing Fossil Bones

This activity is simple to prepare for and rich in discovery. Students reconstruct an ancient fossil skeleton by puzzling together individual paper "bones".

This activity appears in the book Adventures in Paleontology: 36 Classroom Fossil Activities by Thor A. Hansen and Irwin L. Slesnick and illustrated by D. W. Miller.

For more information on this activity, go to The Great Fossil Find at ENSI.

Directions: Print out drawing, cut out the various bones, and put them together as an ancient fossil animal.
