Excavation Sites
By: GSLC Posted On: 2020-06-10

In a wading pool (or in several smaller shallow pans) hide items in sand/dirt that are normally found in the
ground at an excavation site. Give each person a list of items they need to find and a paint brush. They
are not to dig but to carefully brush away to discover their find! Once an item is found and identified they
should carefully cover it up again for another to discover. Alternative: create plaster-of-paris fossils (kits
found at craft stores) and bury these.
