Introducing the Flipgrid Explorer Series
Voices with Antarctica
Explorer Series: Raptors
Explorer Series: Fossils
SInce the first two were so engaging and informative, Flipgrid rolled out another episode of the series, fossils. For this Explorer Series, Jason Osborne, a paleontologist from Midland, Texas gave students a look into fossil discovery in a river. He also provided students with information on the gear that he uses, the tools that he has, and the process describing how these ancient fossils end up in riverbeds. What's really awesome about this series is that it's still an OPEN GRID! Students can still submit to it if your class is itching to know more about this piece of ancient archaeology.
