Mac, Information Detective, introduces the during stage of the research process in which students locate, collect, organize, and interpret their information in order to answer their questions. In this Case, students have found a rock which is no ordinary rock ( it may be a fossil!). They have many questions and they begin digging for answers. Mac introduces them to a new clue: I give you Clue #4: Get ready for ...Information Exploration! Answers we will find. Information Exploration. I've got FOSSILS on my mind!
