Title: An Indoor Fossil/Archeological Dig
Url: http://www.maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mgs/education/lessons/act26.htm
Publisher: Maine. Department of Conservation.
Description: In this activity, students will participate in a simulated fossil hunt or archeological excavation. Working in groups, they will excavate fossils or artifacts buried in a container and tag, number and label, and record the position and details of each object encountered. They will make site sketches as each layer is removed. When all the objects have been found, and all the information obtained, the group can compose a field report on the dig site that makes some inferences about the conditions that existed at the time the fossil/artifact was buried. A student worksheet is provided.
