This is a great hands-on activity to teach students about the importance of paleontologist and fossils. Students will be given a cookies and paleontologist tools (paint brush and tooth pick) to safely remove the fossils (chocolate chips) from the cookie. Your students will love this hands on activity. It gives them a chance to be introduced to a unique career while learning about the importance of fossils!
There is a lesson plan and two recording sheets attached. These sheets include a hypothesis question, a conclusion, and a chance for students to think through the way them completed the activity.
