This activity is a cute activity to use with your fossils unit. It may be used towards the end of your unit, in order to sum up key concepts like how fossils form, comparison to animals/plants living now, and a fossil's realistic environment. Students create a foldable using file folders. They bend it into three sections (sort of like a science fair board) and use it to create a mini "museum exhibit." They will also need to create a replica of their fossil. When they are finished, they can walk around, read, and learn about all the other "museum exhibits!"
