The Woolly Mammoth roamed throughout the northern North American continent, northern Europe, and Siberia. Occasionally in the permafrost areas of northern Siberia a mammoth is uncovered with hair preserved. This hair is at least 10,000 years old and found in Taimyr Region of Siberia, Russia.
Hair is sealed in a 3" by 5", screw type plastic case, that is often used to secure baseball cards. The hair is from Siberia, but packaged in the USA. Contains almost twice as much hair as any other samples we've seen!
Students can use the Woolly Mammoth Hair as part of an investigation to gather information and evidence to support claims for early life in the Geologic History of Earth.
With close examination and research about the Woolly Mammoth, students can make inferences about Earth's history, common ancestry, diversity of life and adaptation.
Any hands-on activity with fossils will create a strong foundation for Geologic History lessons at all grade levels.
