This is a Very fun lab that will teach your students about how archaeologists and paleontologists explore and research. This lab allows your students to "excavate" the remains of a fossil site... a cookie! My students love completing this lab because they get to imagine the role that these important scientists play in the scientific community while having a blast at the same time! You can change/modify the materials/cost at your "store" that students buy their materials at; I use a table in the back of my room and I have the students come up one at a time as it is very easy to manage. Have fun!
Three different brands of cookies with chocolate chips, tools (toothpicks, wooden skewers, popsicle sticks, makeup brushes, stopwatch)
The designed PDF can be enjoyed the way it is, but a straightforward editable word doc is included as well.
