Coal is fossil fuel or fuel that comes from the remains of prehistoric plants or animals. The formation of coal occurs over millions of years via a process known as carbonation. In this process, dead vegetation is converted into carbon-rich coal under very high temperature and pressure. Minerals and energy play a very important role in the. FOSSILS - "The Creationist's Best Friend" (i.e. the fossil record) shows mass death and burial of former life around the world. A dead fish today doesn't sink - it floats. And if a human body is exhumed from 6 feet under it already shows signs of decay, not superb preservation.

Conditions conducive to the formation of fossils include quick burial in moist sediment or other material that tends to prevent weathering and to exclude oxygen and bacteria, thereby preventing decay. Shells and bones embedded in sediment in past geologic time, under conditions suitable for.   How to Do the Gummy Fossil Experiment: You will need just a few simple supplies: Bread (a few different kids is best to show sedimentary layers), Gummy candies (we used a mix of worms and bears) and some heavy books. To make it you layer the bread and gummy candies. We did a few layers of each. I don’t think the numbers really matter so much.

Usually, the bodies of dead animals and other living things are completely destroyed by decay. But sometimes they become buried in ways that stop the decay. Over time, these remains may turn into fossils.

The totality of fossils is known as the fossil record. Paleontology is the study of fossils: their age, method of formation, and evolutionary significance.

Specimens are usually considered to be fossils if they are o years old. The oldest fossils are around billion years old .Fossils Tell of Long Ago (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2) is a wonderful book that explains how fossils and old bones help us to learn about history.
