November proved to be a great time of the year for a rock study! We learned about rocks and minerals, life under rocks and even had great luck finding fossils in rocks.
What are fossils? They’re remains of plant or animal life from the past. As the song from Buddy Davis from Answers in Genesis goes…”billions of dead things buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth.” Finding fossils is like a treasure hunt! Here in Central KY, we don’t have to go far to find wonderful fossil examples…
The shells are easy to see, but can you find the coral in the bottom right corner?
This picture is harder to see, but there are bone-like fossils in the middle and near the bottom.
The coral is easy to see in the middle of this picture!
I’d love to see pictures of fossils you find in rocks!
Below are some of the resources we used this month. December will be focusing on Animal Signs. I may or may not put up resources in the sidebar since December is such a busy month. If not, I’ll be sure to add Conifer resources in January!
