Fossil Fun with the Stewards

On a fossil-focused day at the Hornby Island School, the primary students took the opportunity to visit the Natural History Centre and nurture their inner paleontologist. The students were given a tour of the mosasaur and giant ammonite fossils and other fossil displays. Then they created some of their own rock-like relics.

In this video, Natural History Steward Tina Wai offers tips for identifying fossils and opens up stones to reveal the multi-million-year-old concretions inside.
