This unit will introduce the following topics to students and have them read informational texts about the following ideas with provided worksheets:

*rocks v. fossils
*how are fossils formed
*two types of fossils

And then explore (again, by reading informational texts) 5 famous rock formations with the following options for activities:

Lastly, there is work around excavating fossils! I found them in the dollar section at target and my students loved this, if you can find them!!

*museum placard for the excavated fossil
*excavation expectations

ENJOY! This is perfect for students obsessed with nature/ rocks, or just for a science unit, and is great for older students who read at lower levels.

Note-All informational texts are links to articles - you can print or have students explore them on their own devices. Check links before sharing with students! The famous rocks also have links to videos!
