Product Description
We know that millions of years ago the continents were not in the places are today. In this project, students will imagine what happens one million years into the future when two continents come together that are currently apart. How will the organisms on the new supercontinent interact? Students will make predictions and write the 'story' that will take place on this future landmass. They will then create fossils and bury them in rock layers that tell their story. Finally, students get to play archaeologist and dig up another group's fossil to attempt to reconstruct their story.

This project is aligned with middle school NGSS standards and will require to students to synthesize many different earth science and life science topics. Your students will engage in high-level thinking and they will love the hands-on, creative aspects of this project!

Materials required: Play Dough/Clay, Sand, Dirt/Soil, Loaf Tins, Cups, Plates, Spoons, Forks
