Memory Bones

Our new inquiry topic this term is called Memory Bones.  It is a science unit and will involve us investigating fossils.  The name of the topic was taken from the historical novel "Memory Bones" by Melaina Faranda.  We will study this novel as it is the story of Mary Anning, one of the most famous fossil hunters in the world, who lived in the early years of the nineteenth century.

"I was fascinated by the daily treasure hunt.  There were memories in those stones.  Memories of another age, another time, when creatures that seemed impossible dreams had lived on the earth".


  1. That novel sounds great! I can't wait to read it. It looks interesting!

  2. Cool! I'm going to love that book!
