Fun Friday and Fossils

I have a fossil for every student in my class to have at their desks tomorrow, Fun Friday. I am not the creative sort, so I thought I'd reach out to my proteacher community to ask you, "What would you do to make studying fossils fun?"

My idea is mild, simply to sketch what they see. There must be more I can offer

I'd love to hear from others.
Thank you.

Make salt dough and let them press the fossils into it. Remove the fossil and let the salt dough dry and they get their own fossil.

of the fossil before it was a fossil - if that makes sense.

I used to give everyone a chocolate chip cookie and have them dig out the "fossils" (chocolate chips) without damaging the "rock"! It was fun! I gave points if they could get the whole chip out without breaking it and fewer points for half, quarter, or bits of chips. Oh, and they could only use a toothpick!

And first I gave them a cookie to eat while digging for fossils!
