How to Become a Fossil
Saturdays and Sundays
3:00 p.m.

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!
