Exploring How Fossils Form Lab Activity
Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
Students create fossil molds and casts, make observations about the fossilization process, then answer questions that test their understanding of key concepts.
Activities also include preserving an insect in simulated amber and creating a simple carbon impression. In addition to all the necessary materials to create “fossils”, the kit also includes several real fossil specimens for examination and comparison, as well as a teacher’s guide and worksheet copymasters.
