Cookie Fossil Dig
I did this simple, paleontologist cookie dig with students at our library during a summer program, which was perfect for the age group I was working with (3 - 10). However, I've also done cookie mining with middle school students. Women in Mining provides a fantastic activity that includes a financial aspect (students are given a budget and have to purchase their cookie, mining tools, mining time and reclamation costs) in addition to precision. I've mentioned it before, but it's worth repeating... take some time to check out the other activities on the Women in Mining website - they're really well done!
