Fossils

Shells everywhere!

Approximately 450 million years ago, Montreal was covered by a shallow tropical sea. During this period, shell fossils were found in the walls of buildings and on the roadsides. How were these fossils formed and what do they teach us about the history of our planet Earth? Your aspiring paleontologists will conduct a dangerous investigation to identify seven real-life fossils presented to them. They then choose their favourite to make their own cast fossil that they get to take home!

For 30 more minutes:

Let’s go up the geological time scale, from cyanobacteria to human beings, using a five-metre clothesline to show the sequence of major evolutionary events!

Objectives at the elementary level:

  • Describe the major stages in the evolution of living things.
  • Describe the formation of fossils
  • Differentiate between a rock and a fossil.
  • Classify different kinds of fossils based on how they are formed.
  • Make an imprint of a fossil to take home.

Nos besoins

  • If there isn’t much time between animation activities, it is strongly recommended that they are set up in the same area.
  • 6 teams must be formed before the science animator arrives.

Additional charges

  • Travel costs (minimum $ 25) based on distance apply.
  • In 60-minute workshops, if there are more than 5 groups on schedule, the workshops will be spread over more than one day and the transportation costs will have to be adjusted accordingly.
