The boys made their own fossils using seashells, modeling clay and one of our favorite things plaster of paris.
They came out perfect.
They also learned about fossil fuels. To demonstrate the process of how minerals replace bones or shells. We sponges, water, and Epsom salt to help us. After our "fossil" sat for a couple days we noticed how salt crystals were inside the sponge the same way minerals would be inside a bone of shell. We compared our fossil sponge to a regular sponge to note the differences.
