Kids love fossils. It is as simple as that! Fossil Identification Made Easy – the kit is a guide to help kids identify what can be readily found in different localities, some of which are in their own backyards. The goal of this kit is to help kids enjoy collecting fossils and to learn as much as they can about how they relate to the Genesis Flood as recorded in the Scriptures. In addition to learning about how to identify fossils, they will also learn that fossils are the remnants of the Genesis Flood.
This kit is designed for grades 3-12.
Topics covered include:
- Fossil terms
- Adaptability and kinds
- Types of fossils
- Interpretation of the rock layers
- Identification of invertebrate and vertebrate fossils
The text also includes a special section on radiometric dating.
