Feel the tip of an ancient shark’s tooth, be amazed by how little sand dollars have changed, or trace the minuscule segments of a pre-historic echinoderm — children will marvel at these 18 genuine fossils from 4,500 million years old (Precambrian eon) to 1.8 million years old (Quaternary period).
Selected to go with the Time Line of Life (EM824 or EM825)
, children can match these real specimens (not replicas) to the time line. Exciting work!
