  • Stories in rocks

    Jack Daugherty (from left), Makayla Marr and Nathalie Fernandez make some discoveries as Talented And Gifted science students in Susan Wolf’s class at Shelby County High School. They looked over a series of authentic fossils and typed them for classification. Using only the observed characteristics of the rocks, the students hypothesized where the fossils originated and what might have impacted their shape over time. Students also developed a grid to organize the bed of fossils presented to them.
