Fall Leaf Fossils Craft

There is something extra special when you can apply your current science curriculum with a meaningful craft as well as tit into the current season. Cue fall leaf fossils with rocks and fossils science standards. I found this awesome craft on the Scholastic website that is fun, easy, age appropriate, meaningful and cheap. Can I get a win-win?

Fall Leaf Fossil Craft

Students take a leaf scavenger hunt through the school yard or bring leaves/plants from home. Once discussing fossils and how they are “made” with your students, this leaf craft is just fabulous for bringing that standard home.

Here are some authentic plant fossils to show your students.


In my TPT store I have a rocks and fossils word wall resource. A great visual to have displayed while teaching rocks and fossils.
