Your fifth grader will be learning all about fossils this year and the fascinating way they are created. Fossils are ancient plant, animal and microbe life that lived in the distant past and because the conditions were just right, the impression of the lifeform was preserved in stone. Sometimes a hands-on demonstration makes the whole process a litle easier to understand. In this activity you'll make your own fossils to help your kid better understand exactly how they're made in nature.
