I found this today in the yard while doing some light soil work. No idea where it may have come from. Thinking it might have come up from the frost over the years.

Hi there, I'm new to fossil hunting and came across this today in the newly surfaced coast land mass at Kaikoura, New Zealand. It's quite large; at least a foot long.

My granddaughter is in 4-H Geology and has found these two items and no one has been able to ID either one. She found both items at a local sand pit. The first one was in one piece until she accidently dropped it. When it landed it broke open and the white areas were inside. One side feels kind of chalky and the other is feels pretty smooth but has ridges. Any help would be greatly appreciated as she is trying to get her exhibit box ready for the Fair. Thank you, Mari
