Active Learning: Fossil Hunting
Fossil Hunting at Lilydale Brickyard – Ecology and Evolution students learn about the geologic history of the earth, including radiation and extinction of various groups of animals and plants. We learn about fossils that indicate these changes. We take a field trip to the Lilydale Brickyards which are rich in fossils of the Ordovician Period. Students have the opportunity to find and share the fossils they discover.
