The following earth science and paleontology teaching activities have been developed to facilitate use of the biotic databases and the internet for teaching purposes. Some exercises were developed as lab activities for classes offered at the University of Iowa, whereas others are designed to accompany virtual field trips and museum visits.
Each activity is linked to resources on other web pages and is flexibly
organized. Guiding questions or activities accompany the exercises, and
these may be printed and distributed to a class and/or modified to meet
individual needs. These activities assume that the user is familiar with
computers and knows how to access the WWW.
