An Interactive Game Approach to Learning in Historical Geology and Paleontology
Robert L. Reuss, Anne F. Gardulski 2001 Journal of Geoscience Education v49 no2 p120-129
This article describes a series of games to help students identify and answer questions about fossils. The game grows more complex over time as the instructors add rules and phyla to identify. The game begins as a simple &amp;quot;spelling bee&amp;quot; type competition to identify fossil arthropods. Each week, a new phylum and more kinds of questions are added, along with game pieces like dice, trilobucks, and a board that represents geologic time.
