I can't believe this is it for our study of rocks. Tomorrow, we begin weather!
Tessa studied fossils last year during Ancient History, Week 2 and completed a lab very similar to the one featured in ScienceWorks. Many of the unit's worksheets are redundant and not altogether enlightening, so I chose to condense the unit down to one day.
- Read Fossils Tell of Long Ago by Aliki.
- Examined real fossils (fern, coral, mollusk, petrified wood and shark tooth).
- Completed Evan-Moor ScienceWorks for Kids: Geology, Grades 1-3 "Some Rocks Contain Fossils That Tell About Life On Earth Long Ago - Mini Book" (page 71) and "What Was I?" worksheet (page 74).
- Watched Bill Nye the Science Guy: Fossils DVD by Disney.
