When studying earth science, it is fun to have hands on activities and experiments for students. This is a lesson on how to "create" fossils in the classroom, complete with directions and photos of each step in the process. Teachers can take their students on a walk to collect leaves for making fossils or they can collect the leaves ahead of time. There are only a few ingredients used. The project will take two days, but the second day will only involve a short amount of time, maybe 15-20 minutes. The time listed on this description will be for the first day. This can be also done with home schooled children easily.
