  1. I've seen many postings over the years about paid sites to collect. Does the forum have a repository of those sites someplace? for instance- When my children were younger (1990's) we made three trips to Kemmerer,, Wy a couple of trips to Florissant, CO, a trip to U DIg in Utah, all of which I would recommend, although 20 yrs later I'm not sure how good those sites are. These trips are nice for people who are out for a (summer) vacation and want an interesting family experience. Besides, no one has to keep these sites secret. Sites out of the USA would also be of great interest. There are also many easy public collecting areas, where there are many leftovers (Venice Beach, FL), or endless supplies of material (like the 50 mile radius of Cincinnati) that could be included in the thread If there isn't already a thread (I didn't find it on a casual search) would it be of interest to the forum to list a pinned thread of sites people have used that are family friendly, or perhaps more exotic/expensive for those with more money and older children, such as some of the Nebraska ranches)? This thread could be used as a vacation planner, I apologize if this information is already in a file and I am just missing it. Many of the postings here are from that small part of the community that have the most knowledge and experience. The majority of collectors are likely more casual, but some of the young ones will be the experts of the future.
  2. THE FLIGHT OF THE PTEROSAURS

    I recently received this book as well as some home-made cookies from a friend in Louisiana (not a Forum member). It's great and although it's for children is excellent fun and very informative. A recommended gift for kids and adults too.
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if there are any professional paleontologists, geologists, physical scientists or other paleo professionals out there willing to write a review for a children's book on coprolites. Please send me a personal message if you are interested. Thanks! Lori
  4. Children and Fossils

    From the album Justin's Shark Teeth

    Action shot! Even my four year old daughter learned to spot the shark teeth, they both race each other to sort through the screen after we clear all the sand, hahaa!!
  5. Hi Guys and Gals for thefossilforum! I was just welcoming a new member in the introductions and read how he is interested in bringing his love of fossils and the adventure of the hunt to children in schools. I know that we have a member of the Forum in California who does this, but of course couldn't remember his name. There have been lots of posts on the Forum about children and adventures that members have had with their children and grandchildren, neices and nephews. But nothing really searchable on how to bring our love of fossils to a larger, young audience. I have a special interest in this as I am a substitute teacher as well as a fossil addict! Being a substitute can be difficult as the children test you. I have found that by bringing a fossil (often the jewelry I make from fossils) or fossils to schools and sharing them with the children, I can often get control of the class more quickly and have a better day teaching. With that in mind, I spent a little time doing a search of fossil sites on the web related to children and fossils. This is the list I came up with. Not comprehensive, but a nice cross section. And, I am also building my own website for beginners, but specific to SE Minnesota Bluff Country. Bev http://www.fossils-f...activities.html For Teachers Lesson Plans Worksheets Downloadable Word Search Puzzles Coloring Pages Pretty much a one stop shop for kids, fossils, activities. http://www.fossilsforkids.com/ I believe this to be the site that another Forum member hosts. Kids site, not for teachers. http://www.kidsdinos...are-fossils.php Lots of interactive games for kids that I had fun playing! This is a science site, geology, astronomy, biology, etc. http://www.neok12.com/Fossils.htm Teachers resource page. http://www.brooklynk...sils_FIN_HR.pdf Great teaching guideline pdf With interactive activities for kids http://www.scienceki...th/fossils.html For teachers, with worksheets.
  6. Hi all, Yesterday a coworker told me she would be in Chesapeake VA Friday-Sunday Dec. 23-25, 2011. She asked me if I could suggest any collecting sites less than an hour away where she could take three kids ages 6-13 for an hour or two. I told her I would do a little research. I fairly quickly found mention of a site called Chuckatuck Quarry south of Smithfield, or about 25 miles nw of Chesapeake. Apparently the site has excellent Yorktown Fm. invertebrates, althoough the vertebrates may be a bit scarce. Some of what I read seemed to imply that the site is now closed to collecting. Can any of you tell me more about this place, ie. whether collecting is currently permitted, is it kid-friendly, exact directions, contact info, etc.? Alternatively, can anyone suggest any other suitable sites less than an hour's drive from Chesapeake? It just has to be kid-friendly and have plenty of easy-to-find fossils of any kind - I'm not looking for anybody's super-secret meg site or anything. I haven't asked her this yet, but I know she's heading north on the 26th - maybe she would be amenable to stopping somewhere along the way that wouldn't be limited to an hour's drive from Chesapeake. I read that York River State Park has a fossil display, and fossil shells can be collected along the river bank nearby. Anybody know anything about that site? Thanks for any help anyone can give me. Unfortunately I only have a couple days to find something out for her. Frank
