http://www.pbs.org/parents/crafts-for-kids/homemade-fossils/ Katherine, heres a quick and easy fossil recipe! The students can go outside and find objects like twigs or leaves to fossilize. And if you just wanted to do a quick version, I'm sure playdoh would work just as well. Good Luck!

Peggy, I think you should start your small garden as soon as possible! I've observed the way students react to gardening and I think its great addition to any classroom! Im 22 years old and it still shocks me how quickly seeds grow, its an exciting way to get students to think about nature as early as Pre-K!

5 Food Chain Collection Review
London, I really enjoyed reading through the articles in your Collection on the food chain. Each artifact that you selected had very valuable information and was all very well organized to ensure you could implement each resource in an inquiry lesson. The artifact “Engaging Students with Dynamic Models” describes perfectly an engaging activity that can be done when introducing the food chain as a concept. Using Jenga in order to engage the students is something that I would have never thought of, and would now consider! Playing a game in order to introduce a concept is far better than just showing a video on the food chain. I also loved how you chose an article that focused specifically on teaching students about their locally produced foods. That is a great way to really have the students explore their local community, while having them use their background knowledge on food in general. The goal of all good teachers is to ensure that the students you are teaching are engaged and excited about what they’re learning. This being said I thought that incorporating the NSTA’s I Wonder Why series was a great idea. The “What does an Animal Eat?: I Wonder Why” has illustrations and detailed explanations that will without a doubt make any student interested in learning more about animals and their diet! Overall, the entire collection has everything you would need in order to write a fantastic lesson on the food chain! Great work!
