The Fossilization Process

This The Fossilization Process lesson plan also includes:

After a one-page reading passage about fossilization, earth science explorers make Plaster of Paris molds and casts of objects of their choosing. This activity, although stated as grades 7-9, is really more appropriate for grades 4-6. Also note that some of the questions following the activity are specific to the West Coast Fossil Park in South Africa. The resource is most useful for the informative text and the instructions for making the fossils in class.
