Stuck for home school ideas? This is a great little starter kit. It comes with five different types of marine fossil (all from different geological ages); detailed information cards for each item and a mini microscope. It's a good introduction to fossils in general and you never know what you are going to find when you inspect the world close up.
This kit contains: 1 trilobite; 1 dendritic graptolite; 1 shark tooth; 1 goniate; 3 crinoid ossicles; `1 mini microscope.
The mini microscope comes with button cell batteries included, and is therefore not suitable for children aged 7 and under. If you are looking for a kit for this age group, I would recommend the fossil starter kit without microscope. We are currently out of stock of magnifying glasses, but these will be available within the next few weeks and is the recommended item for younger children.
