Explore the world of fossils by bringing them to life by telling their stories. Students jump from a picture of a fossil into becoming the fossil and creating the backstory. They explore all aspects of story writing and telling to write and perform a monologue from the pictured fossil’s point of view. As students create the life and past of their fossil, they are learning from the inside out. By sharing them using voice, body, mind and heart, the fossils are etched in their memories. Empathizing the making and life of a fossil will bring knowledge and vocabulary to light in new and exciting ways.
