For Grade 3
Join our team as we use evidence from fossils to understand what environments were like long ago. Students will be sent out in groups to uncover fossils. The excavators dig, fossil experts will identify the fossils, and ecologists will identify the environment the organism once lived in. The group will use this fossil evidence to infer what the dig location was like in the past.
