Digging for . . . . chocolate?

 After learning how paleontologists excavate fossils, the students participated in a project designed to discover just how difficult and time-consuming this process is!  Each student received a chocolate chip cookie, a toothpick, and a paintbrush.  Using their tools, the students were asked to gently remove the chocolate chips from their cookie – without breaking any.  In the end, most students concluded that a palentologist’s job requires lots of time, effort and - most importantly - patience!  See pics below.
