Science-Rocks and Minerals
Last week we had so much fun! We went on a great field trip to the quarry . Later on in the week the kids learned about how archaeologist digs up fossils. We even gave the kids a chocolate chip cookie and had them pretend to dig up the fossils (the chocolate morsels) with a toothpick!
This week the kids be learning more about fossils by going examining real fossils up close. Next they will be making petrified fossils and fossil molds.
