padlet.com Notes about the locality. Consider the following...What fossil animals are dominant in the outcrop? What do you notice about the orientation of the shells in the sediment? Are they thick or thin? Are there any other fossil animals that you can see? Using the drone footage, what is the modern environment like? What would it have been like 5 million years ago? What evidence is there? Post your observations below.
