  • 1. FOSSILS
    PARKER S
  • 2. WHAT ARE THEY?
    Fossils are the remains of plants and animals.
    Fossils look like rocks that have a picture in them.
    The dead plant or animal becomes part of a rock.
  • 3. HOW FOSSILS FORM
    Fossils usually form when a dead plant or animal lies buried in sand or mud.
    Over time the sand or mud and dead remains harden.
    The dead remains turn into rock.
  • 4. KINDS OF FOSSILS
    Body fossils are bones, teeth and eggs.
    Imprint fossils hold the dead plant or animal.
    A trace fossil is an animal’s paw print left behind.
  • 5. DINOSAUR FOSSILS
    Dinosaurs made the largest fossils on Earth.
    They lived two hundred thirty million years ago.
    Paleontologists study these fossils.
  • 6. FOSSIL FUELS
    Coal, oil and natural gas are fossil fuels.
    They form over a very long time.
    Then people use up the fossil fuels.
