  • any available fossils

    Look at the fossils, and allow students to carefully handle them.
    Ask if they look like anything they recognize.
    Tell them how old the fossil is, so how long ago the animal or plant was alive, before it was turned into fossil.

    My ammonite piece gives a sense of how large ammonites could be.
    My limestone piece shows how sedimentary rock is clearly made from layers and layers of shelled animals.


    The limestone piece was used as part of a lesson on how shells become sedimentary rock.
