In science my class is learning about living things
I awed my class with real fossil observations from my dad's collection. Thanks dad!
They loved seeing real trilobites after reading about them in our text.
The evening following our lesson I whipped up a batch of Coffee Ground fossil dough.
After realizing one batch wasn't enough I found myself brewing another pot of coffee to get more grounds and 2 hours later had my fossil dough prepped. I drank a couple of cups of the coffee I brewed along the way, so as to not waste.
Then I cut out enough circles for my students to make fossil imprints with a small fish.
The imprint process
Tip alert: Spray the imprinting object with nonstick cooking spray
(I learned this the hard way after tearing up several imprints while trying to lift them off)
The finished fossil after drying
Grab the directions to have fossil fun in your class!
Thanks for taking another "Peek Into my Planbook"
