This kit, suggested for ages 8 and up, contains nine real fossils for your class to hold. It includes an ammonite, bryozoa, petrified wood, gastropod, fossil fern, crinoid stem, colony coral, a shark’s tooth and a brachipod. If you don’t know what any of those are, don’t worry, a helpful guide comes with the kit! The identification chart and information guide will help you give your classroom a simple introduction to identifying and studying fossils, as well as teach about the history of the Earth.

These 70 million-year-old fossils are bound to fascinate your classroom. Think about pairing this kit with the Zoomy: digital microscope to help your classroom examine every millimetre of detail in these little fossils. You can read about that kit here.
