We talked about what archaeologists do and why and the kinds of things they find.
Then we made trace fossils.
We looked at examples of cave drawings and then did a group cave drawing. For this activity they could use chalks, oil pastels, or markers and draw part of a story.
We hung up the drawing. They did a great job! My camera ran out of batteries so I had to use my phone for the rest of the pictures.
They could do another cave drawing on a smaller piece of paper to take home with them.
They also got to dig chocolate chips out of a chocolate chip cookies using tooth picks.
The trace fossils turned out really cool!
