This book of fossil facts teaches kids how fossils are made, where to find fossils, and what can be learned from fossils—all from a biblical perspective!
This book is dedicated to my four sons, Phil, Tim, Josh, and
David, whose growing-up years ignited a life-long passion
within me to teach kids.
A fossil is a part of an animal or
plant that has been preserved in rock.
How did it happen that billions and billions of things
died and are preserved for us in the rock layers of the earth?
Body parts fossils were formed when
a plant or animal died and was buried
quickly in wet sediment.
Trace fossils are marks of a creature’s everyday activities left in hardened sediment.
Let’s go back to the beginning when the world was very good. What could have caused fossils to form?
This might sound surprising to you, but 95% of all fossils are
creatures from the sea.
Hunting fossils is so much fun.
But are there things
we can learn from fossils?
Most fossils are found in sedimentary rocks.
