Investigating Amber Fossils Lab Investigation


Uncover prehistoric insects trapped in amber! Captivate your students as they polish amber to reveal actual, prehistoric insects - snared thousands of years ago! Using the included dichotomous key, they’ll be able to identify and classify the trapped insects. And they’ll also experience the process of fossilization as they cast their own specimens in simulated amber! Through these activities, your class will gain a better understanding of how fossils are formed as well as how the Earth’s fossil record helps us to understand our past. Includes everything needed to conduct these fascinating investigations, including actual fossilized specimens, casting materials and comprehensive teacher and student guides featuring complete instructions as well as dichotomous keys. Class size - 40 students.
