Third grade paleontologists have also learned that there are several different types of fossils: mineralized fossils, trace fossils and preserved fossils. On Thursday, third grade paleontologists cycled through all three third grade classrooms in order to create a model of each type of “fossil.” Thank you so much to Annie's mom, Ollie's mom, Katie's mom and Shohum's mom for helping us out as we learned and created.
Ask your third grade paleontologist:
*To explain how each type of fossil is created.
*To explain why it's impossible for these models to be "real" fossils.
*What organisms they "fossilized.
