Evidence for Evolution

Things that fossils can tell us:

  • What the creatures and plants of the fossils looked like
  • How long ago they existed (eg. The deeper the rock, the older the fossil)
  • They show how organisms have evolved, from studying similarities and differences between fossils from different time periods and species

The fossil record is a collection of discovered fossils, scientists piece together the evidence to help them understand the process of evolution from different species.

The gaps in fossil records:

  • Very few
