This activity will have students learn about fossils and the evolution that certain species have taken over thousands of years. The students will compare the coelacanth to an eel, and a shark. They will be able to see the similarities and differences in all three creatures’ anatomy. The students will also research other ancient fish and do a jigsaw so that every student learns about the different fish. This activity involves student research using the internet to find resources.
