Your students will be Paleontologists for this activity! Using a chocolate chip cookie, they will excavate the fossils (chocolate chips) from the rock (cookie!) They will use the toothpick as their tool, and will also use a small paintbrush to brush away any extra rock from their fossils.
Students will have a reading passage about a Paleontologist's work, and then will follow step by step instructions on how to complete their dig!
They will also answer questions at the very end.
I hope you enjoy this product! It is a part of my full dinosaur unit found at the link below!
