This Junior Paleontologist Activity Book created by the National Park Service provides students (ages 5-12) with an opportunity to learn how fossils form based on the properties of the rocks that support that formation and the field of paleontology. Topics such as descriptions of geologic time, connections to past climate and environments, and methods such as relative age dating used by paleontologists are included. Students are also encouraged to explore national parks and local areas to further explore where fossils can be found. The book contains some extraneous material ( mazes, dot-to-dot, etc.) that can be eliminated.
