Digging Into the Past

Fifth graders study fossils and how they are charted. In this fossil lesson plan, 5th graders research the excavation process of discovering fossils, and view fossils. They then do a hands on activity that involves plastic fossils that they have to chart themselves. They then study different geological areas that have to do with fossils.
