Fossils and Our Past (Cookie Dig)

Third graders examine the differences between cast and mold fossils. They listen to the book "Fossils Tell of Long Ago" by Aliki, and discuss different types of fossils and where they are found. Next, 3rd graders participate in a simulated fossil dig that uses chocolate chip cookies.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
