Make the ancient past come to life for kids with the Paleontologist's Backpack Kit. With a pack full of real paleontology tools, students can conduct their own digs and feel like real paleontologists. This kit is perfect for kids who love dinosaurs and the prehistoric era.
The Paleontologist's Backpack Kit comes stuffed with all the tools and supplies kids need to excavate fossils. The included 8-piece fossil set will get them excited to find their own fossils in the field. And the included fossiliferous limestone and tools take kids from unboxing to unearthing in the same day!
Some of the included items they'll learn to use are:
- heavy-duty rock pick to break specimens off larger rock formations,
- eight-inch rock chisel for chipping fossils out of rocks,
- wooden skewer for digging out nooks and crannies,
- brush to gently clear debris from fragile specimens,
- fossiliferous limestone chunk to split open and hunt for fossils,
- magnifying glass for viewing details up close, and more.
The included full-color photographic guides help kids get started looking for fossils. The full-color manual teaches kids the basics of paleontology and how to use the included tools. The pocket-sized Golden Guide Fossils fits in the front pocket of the pack for quick reference in the field. The included notebook provides a handy place for kids to record observations, test results, and more.
Paleontology is the study of fossils and life forms that lived in the ancient past. Fossils are the naturally preserved remains, or preserved impressions, of plants and animals. Paleontologists are the scientists who study paleontology.
