Exploring Fossils


Mr. David Oomen of Otisville came to our Middle School to share a small part of his extensive fossil collection with the students of Mr. Simmons' sixth grade science class. The class has been studying fossils as part of evidence used to support the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics. Mr. Oomen, along with his son Dirk, who is a student in Mr. Simmons' class, passed various samples of fossils around the classroom to give the students the opportunity to actually handle and view the fossils up close. The  highlight of Mr. Oomen's presentation was his dinosaur egg.
