    Near our school there's a diatomite (sp?) mine (its used to make cat litter and drywall). They allow my 1st graders in for free to look for fossils. There are fish fossils trapped in the layers of diatomite and my students can dig them up using a plastic picnic knife. Over the years we have found some great fossils!
