Welcome back to class everyone! We’re talking about old things today! Are you ready to talk about fossils?

Today’s Science Word of the Week is Fossil: a fossil is a preserved animal or plant. A fossil must be 10,000 years old. There are two kinds of fossils- body and trace. A body fossil is the actual remains (ex. bones and eggs). A trace fossil is the remains of activity, like a footprint or imprint.

Fossils give scientist great information on ancient animals, plants and habitats! Scientists who study fossils are called paleontologists.
