HOW ARE FOSSILS FORMED?
Rock fragments are transported to the sea, and are then deposited (sink) and form sediments
(Dead) Creatures/plants/insects are trapped inside the sediemnts
Many years pass (around a million), and that causes a lot of pressure of the layers above brings and fixes the sediments together, and causes sedimentary rocks such as limestone, sandstone, mudstone to form
While the body of the insect/creature or leaf decays, its shape is being imprinted in the rock....
