Explore fossil-sites from your classroom!
What do fossil-hunting sites look like? Are they all the same? These are questions Jules is asked all the time by students from all over the country.
The good news is... now you can see for yourself!
A new resource available on the PalaeoLab site allows users to view, in 360-degree vision, a selection of fossil sites visited by Jules in recent years. By 'dragging' the scene, classroom viewer can look around, gathering a feel for place and location. The page is perfect for white-board explorations in the classroom.
Currently there are two sites students can have a look at: a Jurassic clay pit in Peterborough (UK) and a working site, the La Brea Tar Pits of Los Angeles (USA). The plan is that we will add more in due course.
Teachers, please use them - they're there for your classes to enjoy!
