Students have the opportunity to play paleontologist, as they sift through fossilized sediment to find shark teeth, shells and more!

Learn about the many kinds of fossils there are, how they are made, and what various fossil types can tell us about ancient life, while preparing to embark on a mini fossil dig.

Next, analyze and compare findings to a fossil identification guide, using the scientific process to determine the origin of fossils uncovered.

This interactive, hands-on, inquiry based lab presentation is great for grades 2nd and up, and a wonderful reinforcement for TEKS earth science objectives.

Book this program, and see what it’s like to be a paleontologist for a day!

Recommended for 2nd Grade and above
