Clear concepts, technological updates and the usefulness of the didactic resources of the environment are presented, as a common thread on local solutions to rapid changes in nature, and the consequences of a global climate change towards a progressive warming. For this purpose, a workshop entitled «Fossils and Climate Change» was held with a group of 40 Environmental Science students. This workshop consists of two sessions, one informative and another practice with real fossils, and models and 3D replicas, selected from the Neogene and Quaternary fossil record of the Canary Islands (last 23 million years). For the validation of the data of the surveys to the students on the motivation and creativity of the workshop, a previous questionnaire of affection and knowledge was used; In addition, after the workshop, a learning questionnaire was completed. The results are significant, highlighting among them, for their originality, the use of 3D models that favors the distinction of taxa at the species level. It is evident the interest of the students to learn about 3D technology, and that knowledge of Climate Change through fossils is valued as a motivating and creative way for their learning.
