How to Become a Fossil
Saturdays and Sundays
Explore how fossils form and what parts of animals can become fossilized! How old are the earliest fossils? How old does something have to be before it is considered a fossil? You’ll touch some real fossils, learn the different types of fossil evidence, and discover what is necessary to become a fossil. Finally, we’ll discuss what kinds of things fossils can tell us, and how fossil casts are made in the museum!
