Wonderville: Fossil Fabricator

With National Fossil Day coming soon - October 17 - play this game that lets you make your own fossil based on the conditions you select. Read about the four types of fossils that are preserved in sedimentary layers. In making your own fossil you can choose how your dinosaur died, where it died, what effects happened over time in the place your dinosaur died, and how the fossil was exposed. As you are making your choices, some will not make a fossil, so you’ll learn why and you have a chance to go back and apply what you’ve learned.
