Fossil Fact Book Project
701, 702 & 703 Science
Due Friday, Dec 6th
You will be creating a Fossil Fact Book. The book will be 2 pages folded over, so as to be divided into 3 sections. Mr. Halpern will show you how to fold the pages. The book must have pictures that must be printed and not drawn!
The sections are titled:
How are fossils formed & how can you find the age of a fossil?
A specific fossil discovery that interests me….
Other fossil fun facts
Each section can be typed or hand written. Pictures should be placed throughout the book to enhance the topic. Be sure to use your own words. I am interested in your knowledge of the subject.
The front cover must say the title “Fossil Fact Book”, along with your name and class as well as a picture
The back cover of the fact book must have a “Glossary”. On this page you must have at least 5 words that you came across during your research along with their definitions as well as a “Bibliography” demonstrating at least 3 sources that you used to find information. Keep in mind that “Wikipedia” is not an acceptable source since it can be altered.
This project should be neat, pretty and an example of your best work. Pay careful attention to spelling and grammar.
You will be graded on:
following the appropriate format
demonstration of knowledge
demonstration of interest
spelling and grammar
Should you choose to hand in your booklet on Monday, Dec. 2, you will qualify for 10 pts extra credit or Tuesday, Dec. 3, 5 pts extra credit on this assignment. There is no extra credit for Thursday, Dec 5.
