In 6th grade Social Science, students are studying the importance of artifacts and fossils to archaeology. Students began their exploration by participating in an archaeological dig where they uncovered actual fossils. During the dig students used tools similar to those used by archaeologists, and made sketches and kept notes on the characteristics of the fossils they found. Finally, they engaged in research which provided information about the habitat that the fossils came from and the age.
