An edible science experiment your students will love!
Students will explore what it is like to be a paleontologist as they excavate fossils from their dig site using chocolate chip cookies and toothpicks.
Students will use this activity guide to record data as they experiment. They will also reflect on what it was like to do a paleontologist's job at the end of the activity.
Note - The cookies are usually crumbled by the end, so I usually bring an extra package to reward their hard work. :)
