Woolly Mammoth Hair NGSS

SKU #RM-750
Availability: In Stock
Qty.
At least 10,000 year old Mammoth hair, found in Siberia, Russia.

Description

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!

This was okay for the children to be able to look at mammoth hair but it is a very small sample.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

3-LS4-1

Students can use the Petrified Wood to analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

DCI-4/ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth.

Local, regional, and global patterns of rock formations reveal changes over time due to earth forces, such as earthquakes. The presence and location of certain fossil types indicate the order in which rock layers were formed.

MS-ESS1-4

Students can use the Petrified Wood as evidence to construct a scientific explanation based on the fossil record from rock strata for how geologic time scale is used to organize Earth's 4.6-billion-year-old history.

MS-LS4-1

Students can use the Petrified Wood to analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past.

MS-LS4-2

Students can use the Petrified Wood to apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships.

DCI-MS/ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth.

The geologic time scale interpreted from the rock strata provides a way to organize Earth's history. Analysis of rock strata and fossil record provide only relative dates, not absolute scale.

DCI-MS/LS4.A: Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity.

The collection of fossils and their placement in chronological order is known as the fossil record. It documents the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of many life forms throughout the history of life on Earth. By reviewing anatomical similarities and differences between various organisms living today and organisms in the fossil record, we can reconstruct evolutionary history and interference of lines of evolutionary descent.

HS-ESS1-4

Students can use the anatomical structures of the Petrified Wood as evidence to communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple line of empirical evidence.

HS-LS 4-5

Students can use the Petrified Wood and information about the fossil record to evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in the extinction of species.

DCI-HS/LS4.C: Adaptation.

Species become extinct because they can no longer survive and reproduce in their altered environment. If members cannot adjust to change that is too fast or drastic, the opportunity for the species' evolution is lost.

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.
