Kids love fossils

Dinosaur bones, cephalopods, trilobites, and amber all share a common thread.  They are all fossils.  A fossil is by definition any remains, impression or trace of a living thing from a former geological era.  As a window into a ancient world, fossils capture the imagination.  Lets take a closer look at these treasures of the past.   Fossils For Kids
