iSprowt’s Fossil Dig & Erosion Lab kit is a subset of our Fossil Dig, Erosion and Maps kit but focuses just on Erosion.

–  Students join Spriggy and Twiggy on an imaginary journey to the Grand Canyon where they unearth a very special earth block that contains 2 real shark’s teeth.

–  Then learners  use the earth block pieces from their fossil dig to perform a full hands-on erosion lab where they predict and model wind, river, rain, flood and ocean erosion.  Deepen students understanding as they expand their learning with writing.

Our Fossil Dig & Erosion Lab cross-cutting workbook engages students with reading, writing, predicting and modeling.

Bring science to life with iSprowt’s exciting, phenomena-based Fossil Dig & Erosion Lab kit.

While students work together on activities, they each receive their own 40-page NGSS and ELA aligned workbook.  Empower learners with reading, writing, drawing, predicting and modeling. The highly engaging workbook is packed with student-friendly instructions, NGSS aligned science materials, a short story featuring the  Sprowteez characters, videos, puzzles, and more.  The workbook captivates young minds and keeps them engaged while enriching independent learning and working as a team.

iSprowt’s phenomena-based science kits were developed to help students achieve their highest potential in school and in life.

Deepen Learning

Facilitates Independent Learning and Teamwork

Once students are independently reading (typically around 3rd grade), they can do these kits with very little teacher facilitation.  Pre-K through 2nd grade learners also thrive with iSprowt kits with teachers supporting learning by reading aloud from the workbooks or using the included iSprowt teacher presentation slides.

Standards Alignment

Each kit ties to specific NGSS requirements and features hands-on interactivity that sparks curiosity, increases retention, and encourages children to take risks while developing their knowledge. Ensure your young scientists are on their highest track to success while having fun with iSprowt!

NGSS Alignment:

* 2-ESS1-1 Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.

* 2-ESS2-1 Compare multiple solutions designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.

* 4-ESS1-1 Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.

* 4-ESS2-1 Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of
erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.
