Paleontologists use many different tools to dig for fossils--how do they choose which tools are the right ones for the job?
Today's Topic: Tools for Digging Supplies:
shovels (as wide a variety of sizes as you can pull together, but not too heavy or sharp)
sand (we used modeling or "moon" sand similar to this but regular sand would work fine)
things to bury (we used fossils and minerals on loan from the UW Geology Museum plus plastic dinosaurs and a floor puzzle)
styrofoam packing peanuts (or other inexpensive, bulky filler)
tarps (to cover your floor if it's carpeted) plastic dinos frozen in a big block of ice
old toothbrushes, paint brushes or other brushes
spoons, butter knives
safety glasses (optional)
Today's Topic: Camouflage in Nature Supplies:
m & m candies and Skittles candies (classic colors), sorted by color
patterned paper (find two matching papers and cut shapes from one sheet)
large pieces of fabric
