Fossils and Dinosaurs Product Reviews - Educational Innovations BlogFossil Sorting Kit

We ordered the fossil kit to explore fossils with our third graders. The amount of fossils we received is amazing for one kit! They also have a great variety. If you study fossils, this is an excellent resource to have and I strongly recommend making the purchase.

Fossils and Dinosaurs Product Reviews - Educational Innovations BlogFossil Shark Teeth

 I teach Marine Bio and I also do “Sea Creatures” camps in the summer for elementary and middle school. I love bringing out the shark’s teeth in piles for students to sort through and classify. It brings up diversity, size, diets, investigations of what other features that these different sharks exhibit…  These are just a few things that come out of these shark teeth. The key that comes with this for classifying the teeth is useful. Students love this.

Fossilworks Fossil Molding KitFossils and Dinosaurs Product Reviews - Educational Innovations Blog

Excellent molds!  I use these as a lab to talk about types of fossils in my HS evolution unit.  I have kids put a small piece of paper with their name, period and spray paint color choice, and then my TA’s and I do the spray paint so the kids get their casts the next day.  The casting plaster works really well both with these molds and in the field.

Geology camp hit!  The molds worked well.  My husband made 25 teeth in a week for a geology camp.  The campers loved them and painted them to look even more realistic!

Perfect cast is the best molding material.  It’s strong and does not break when you are removing it from the mold.

School Product Reviews - Educational Innovations BlogDisappearing Dinosaurs Mug

$12.95 seems like an awful lot to spend on a single coffee mug… but it is absolutely worth every cent.  It is an interesting conversation piece, it goes well with the decor of my classroom, AND chicks dig it!
