  • How Fossils Form  by  Josephine Niebruegge
  • Oh no, I'm going to be buried in this sandstorm.
  • The elephant is quickly buried in sediments from the sandstorm.
  • Layers and layers of materials build up on top of the buried organism over millions of years.
  • Minerals from layers above replace the cells; the fossil is complete.
  • Woah! Is that an elephant fossil?
  • Over time, the Earth's crust shifts the layers where the fossil is, and erosion wears away the top layers. This causes the fossil to be exposed.
