This webquest was designed for second grade students to meet California Earth Science content standards, language arts/writing standards, and technology standards.  Students learn how fossils are created, as well as how paleontologists use fossils to learn about the past.  Students work in pairs to read and explore various websites, reading and taking notes of details to use to create an informational poster.
