What stories are hidden in the rocks? Think like a scientist and make connections to our past through fossil hunting, the geological column, and fossil reconstruction. Learn to interpret the past using systems thinking and geological evidence. Break the cycle of silo thinking by integrating ELA and math standards into your science lessons. Be the first to adopt lessons using the new state science standards for earth science. Leave with all the materials to make a simulated rock column with real fossils to excavate and help your students become expert geologists and paleontologists.

Special thank you to the Thomas R. Brown Family Foundation for supporting the STEMAZing Teacher Leader Program (STLP). STLP allows us to work with incredible teacher leaders who have designed and will facilitate STEMAZing Workshops like this one.
This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
