What Do Fossils Tell Us? – Ms. Klein’s 5th Grade Class

What does the fossil say?

Ms. Klein, Mrs. Marcus, and the students in class 5-104A studied fossils by examining the role of paleontology in the Western Hemisphere. This extensive project pushed the students' brains to the limit, showing just how dedicated and hard working these learners are. Researching with video and engaging in group discussions, the students worked together to define "fossil" and figure out how we can gather information from our fossils. Then, the class engaged in hands-on exploration, digging up a fossil and "reading" its attributes through observation. Their detailed reports can be "dug up" on this ancient, fossilized bulletin board outside room 104A. Come take a look!
