Fossil Find Trilobite Activity Kit

In order to study the history of life on earth, paleontologists study fossil remains of the organisms that once lived here. Nature Watch's incredible Fossil Find Activity Kit invites participants to become paleontologists by finding and gently removing the sediment to expose real trilobite replicas (small, ocean dwelling creatures that lived over 250 million years ago). And the mini-paleontologists even get to take their finds home! Ages 4 and up. Unit Goals and Concepts: Discuss the... Read More

In order to study the history of life on earth, paleontologists study fossil remains of the organisms that once lived here. Nature Watch's incredible Fossil Find Activity Kit invites participants to become paleontologists by finding and gently removing the sediment to expose real trilobite replicas (small, ocean dwelling creatures that lived over 250 million years ago). And the mini-paleontologists even get to take their finds home!

Ages 4 and up.

Unit Goals and Concepts:

  • Discuss the scientific study of paleontology.
  • Learn how fossils are formed.
  • Share information on different kinds of life that once inhabited the earth.
  • Become paleontologists and find fossils in a dig site.

Materials Included: 

  • 25 mud-covered trilobites and information cards, plus baggies to take "findings" home in.
  • Cleaning brushes (tooth brushes) to clean off the discovered trilobites.
  • A sample fossil set to compare and contrast different types of fossils.
  • An amazing and informative geology wall chart.
  • Books and extra resource materials for instructors and children who want to dig deeper into a world left behind millions of years ago.
  • Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects.
  • The only materials you supply are markers, stapler or tape.

For groups larger than 25, simply add extra trilobites, information cards, and baggies on to your order (see below). Also, be sure to check out our diving beetles-another fossil favorite!
