Concepts Covered

Scientists have identified and classified many different types of plants and animals. A species is a group of similar organisms that reproduce with each other.

Extinction occurs when all of the members of a species die. An example of animals that became extinct is the dinosaurs. Some extinct species look similar to species that exist today.

Fossils are the remains or traces of living organisms that lived a long time ago. Fossils provide evidence of organisms that lived long ago but have become extinct.
