Find a Fossil
 
Fossil Excavations Right in Your Schoolyard!
Grades K-5
 

This experience provides a unique opportunity to search through phosphate ore looking for fossils, like shark's teeth, gastropods, skate teeth and mammal bone! Students will act as if they are actually on a paleontology excavation.

Paleontologists Will:

  • Examine Fossil Formation And Phosphate
  • Search Through “Ore Matrix" For Real Fossils
  • Analyze Fossils By Color And Shape
  • Identify Shark Species Based On Teeth Shape
  • Curate The “Fossil Finds”

In 1 ½ hours students transform into Paleontologists in this one-of-a-kind field trip. No where else is such an experience possible (except in the phosphate mines of Bone Valley!).
