PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a fun way to teach prehistoric fossils in art? This packet is a cross-curricular project has it all for you and your kiddos!

This packet includes six pages of useful teacher tools:
1. A handout on fossils, including some background info on how fossils were created, lists some vocabulary, and asks a higher order question based on the vocab and formation overview;
2. Fossil response sheet, where you can assess students' understanding with sequencing events, and providing a written response;
3. Fossil lingo sheet, where students will fill in the blanks with the vocabulary words in this unit--students also choose one word to further explain in their own words;
4. Lesson plan for a fossil-making project using air-dry clay--includes essential questions, learner objectives, national art standards as well as Common Core connections (for 3rd grade but easily adaptable);
5. Rubric for assessment at the end of the unit;
6. Fossil cookie recipe sheet for use as an extension activity (at school or at home)

I find this helpful in using as a basic structure for interacting with students, leading discussion, and introducing this new concept to them. I use it with third grade, however it could be used in upper elementary too.

This is a perfect example of how to teach interdisciplinary projects! Art, science, and ELA all in one--a great tool for Common Core!

ZIP includes: a PDF file as well as Publisher formats.
