~ Prepare to be amazed what fossil finds are right under your nose

~ even young children can become experienced fossil hunters with a little guidance and patience

~ try and look up your nearest local fossil finding area and prepare a kids activity day to explore the area
~ often there are fossil clubs which you can joine that can offer help indentifying fossils

~ There exist over a million species of insects
~ It is thought the largest insect fossil "the fossil dragonfly" Meganeura lived about 250 million years ago
~ this "dragonfly fossil" had a wingspan of over two feet.

~ Today there are not many isects fossilized in fossil rock
~that is due to the insects exoskeleton which does not preserve very well in most environments that contain oxygen
~ the exoskeleton of the insect is made of chinin, which is a thin plastic like material
~ it is a waterprrof covering that simply odes not preserve well in rock fossils
~ Insect fossils however are found often fossilized in a resin called amber
~ Amber is tree-sap mostly from pine trees
