    Practicing using a Nikon tethered to a computer for imaging. Playing with lights and camera settings. But tomorrow the real fun begins!

    Lighting is incredibly important with photographing your specimens. During his talk on lighting, Zach goes over easy to make inexpensive options to create beautiful images of specimens.

    Hello Everyone,

    We will be uploading all of the tutorial documents used during the workshop to the website.  For now, we will use the google drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1KsNx03RIFVn8k74IJ0dt223BET-_5lxu?usp=sharing

    See you tomorrow!

    Did some outreach today with REx through UF CPET picking fossils from Aurora. They loved it!

    So looking these over again, I am leaning towards a croc tooth perhaps. you mentioned they are quite small, but the length-wise striations on the tooth remind me of croc teeth.

    • The croc tooth is a possibility because there have been other croc bones found in the area too! Thank you so much for getting back with me on this. I will pass on this info to the “experts” so they can have a closer look, with the teeth in hand.

    So this looks like an astragalus (ankle bone) of an artiodactyl (even-toed hoofed mammal). Could you please take a picture facing the direction where your thumb is located on the fifth image? I do not know if this is a deer though, but not because it may not be a deer, but because I do not know my artiodactyl astragali very well. Also, don’t worry about using the term deer, I don’t know many scientific names either!

    that’s a good point lol i will not let you know but i will let the rest of the group know once we know who will be spearheading the outreach.

    When you build 64 fossil kits for K-12 teachers in one afternoon! Thank you to the Scientist in Every Florida School through the Thompson Earth Systems Institute at the Florida Museum for the opportunity to partner with teacher from across the state and build lesson plans! #fossil

    I was thinking of going if I’m in town. I will let you know.

    • Thanks, Jeanette. I’ll be starting my new position at the start of Sept so won’t be able to do anything!

      • that’s a good point lol i will not let you know but i will let the rest of the group know once we know who will be spearheading the outreach.

    A portion of the myFOSSIL group at NAPC2019. This has probably been my favorite conference and I believe it has everything to do with everyone involved! #event

    Discussion thread for participants of the Educators Workshop on Tuesday (June 25) Workshop:

    1. What was your favorite presentation? Why? How do you think you can incorporate into your class?
    2. What do you need more information on to successfully employ the activity in your classroom?
    3. What would you have liked or have expected to have learned?

    • I love the ability to digitally manipulate the fossil specimens on Digital Atlas of Ancient Life. I will definitely use the lesson plans on iDigFossils. I would like to acquire some physical models to use in my classroom. I expected to receive ideas to effectively implement the 5 E’s in science in the area of paleontology.

    • I like the 5E lesson plan with the Digital Atlas of Ancient Life website. I also enjoyed the hands on lesson using the 3D printed fossils and how it connected to a larger story of the animals that harmed the bison. I wish I had 3D printed fossils. I need more time to go through all the lessons. I appreciate the wide range of resources to use in paleontology.

    • My favorite presentation was the hands-on 3D fossil models where you had to match the bite with the damage seen on the bones. I think I can incorporate this into a fun scientific method lesson. I teach Geology and Astronomy so the climate change is very interesting and relevant to my curriculum. Any material that included climate change would be welcomed. I really would like to have opportunities to get the field and find my own fossils and in the future potentially have a field trip with students. Overall, I was really impressed with the presentations and resources provided at this PD.

    • My favorite presentations were the ones on the use of Digital Atlas and iDigFossils. I loved the resources they showed us and the practical classroom/lesson plan application of those resources. I think they will be especially helpful when discussing fossils with students and teaching them that each fossil tells its own story. I would like more information on how to get these 3D models in my classroom since I don’t have access to a 3D printer and how I can connect with these scientists to possibly do a Skype session with my students. I would have liked more presentations on what the 5E looks like in the classroom. I know we lightly touched on it, but more information is always helpful.

    Looks like phalanges (toes) of a mammal of some sort. Where did you find them?
