Silurian and Devonian Periods

Once again we started out by looking at our timeline and matching the Creature Cards to the ones shown. Bug helped out by taking charge of the matching. Before we started reading, I followed a coelacanth rabbit trail to see if I could track down some photographs and possibly a video since it’s a living fossil; and I lucked out.

These periods held some resonance for Bean because the fossils in her collection are from the Silurian/Devonian Periods (thank you, Penn-Dixie!). She enjoyed comparing them to pictures in When Fish Got Feet…
