MPM Fossil Challenge

It looks like a fossil, right? Don’t be so sure! There are a lot of things out there that look like fossils but aren’t. And what is a fossil anyway? This activity challenges visitors to examine several different objects from the Museum’s collections and correctly identify them as either fossils, or something else entirely.
