They can even go back in time and dig up prehistoric fossils with the National Geographic Mega Fossil Dig Kit. Perfect for any future paleontologist, this kit includes genuine dinosaur fossils and shark teeth, plus a 16-page learning guide that illustrates how fossils are formed, while also helping identify each of the 15 fossils.
