In this intensive sixth grade 17-day lesson students will travel to the Aurora Fossil Museum in North Carolina to hunt for fossils and visit the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh. Students will be real scientists throughout the project, taking all the steps scientists do when working to answer a specific question. This project engages students in constant research as they work in groups. It integrates all subjects, just like researchers in their field do, including science, math, social studies, ELA and technology.
