Nice Material for Kids and Artists
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Dec 30, 2016
There are more than enough decent shark teeth in here for the price that artists can include in their Jewelry work. If you are not sure how to clean them up, look it up. You need some acid, and then a rinse dry and acrylic clear varnish. They can be dyed too. Enjoy. For kids, there will be a lot of fun searching through some of the gravel that accompanies them, but overall really nice material. Packed well too. Tomi Jewelry in Tokyo

The shark teeth are much smaller than anticipated and you can't really match to the teeth paper

I recently purchased 2lbs of shark teeth .. All though there was some nice pieces of teeth , their was a lot of really small teeth as well.. My only complant is the amount of ground up material that was left.. Close to 3/4 of a pound of the 2 pounds was usable..

I am torn with this review. For a pound of teeth, I expected a few larger teeth. There were 4 large sized teeth but they were all broken. There were lots of small teeth mostly in tact.

We used these for my son's birthday party. We buried them in the sand and my son and his friends id a dig in which they located teeth. It worked out great and they got to keep the teeth they found. The teeth that we received were better than I had expected!!!

I am a very satisfied customer with the exception of this product. Only a handful of the teeth were complete the rest were bits and pieces. It was also a great disappointment to my students that there were not enough complete or non fractured teeth to go around for each student.
Don Stokes
Owner Response: Don, Thank you for being a loyal customer. I'm so sorry you received a bad batch of sharks' teeth. Since these are found along the beaches in Morocco there are always some that are broken, and they are priced with this in mind. However, your bag certainly should have had plenty of whole teeth for your students to study! We will be more than happy to replace the product, or give you a full refund.

My son, Kaiden, loves his shark tooth fossil collection. He caries it around and shows everyone. Well worth the money.

I teach Marine Bio and I aslo do "Sea Creatures" camps in the summer for elementary and middle school. I love bringing out the shark's teeth in piles for students to sort through and classify. It brings up diversity, size, diets, investigations of what other features that these different sharks exhibit; are just a few things that come out of these shark teeth. The key that comes with this for classifying the teeth is useful. Students love this.

I love these teeth and so do my Kids' College students. I use them in 4 different classes to identify which kind of shark (or ray) and to view what fossil shark teeth look like before we go hunt for some.

I buy a bag of these every year to add to our fossil bed (A bed of pebbles with a lot of marine fossils in them.) My students look forward all year to finding their "own" fossils. They get to keep all the shark teeth they find and I make sure everyone gets at least one. Makes for a great class activity.

Sharks Teeth Geology to Pirate Fashion
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 16, 2012
What kid is not fascinated by sharks teeth? Here is a bag full of them! I have used them as fossil in the geology collections my students assemble and identify to take home. I have used them in For a Pirate theme in summer science camps.... What pirate does not need to learn about sharks. If you know about sharks you earn the right to make a necklace out of the tooth to wear. AArggg What could be more fashionable for a pirate? Sorting, classifying and identifying sharks teeth are always favorite learning centers.

Many of my students have never touched a fossil. Finding, identifying and keeping their own tooth is highly motivating, even for teenagers.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

4-ESS1-1

Students can use the assorted fossils in the Fossil Shark Teeth to identify evidence, to identify patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in the landscape over time.

DCI-4/ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth.

Local, regional, and global patterns of rock formations reveal changes over time due to earth forces, such as earthquakes. The presence and location of certain fossil types indicate the order in which rock layers were formed.

MS-ESS1-4

Students can use the assorted fossils in the Fossil Shark Teeth as evidence to construct a scientific explanation based on the fossil record from rock strata for how geologic time scale is used to organize Earth's 4.6-billion-year-old history.

MS-LS4-1

Students can use the assorted fossils in the Fossil Shark Teeth to analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past.

MS-LS4-2

Students can use the assorted fossils in the Fossil Shark Teeth to apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships.

DCI-MS/ESS1.C: The History of Planet Earth.

The geologic time scale interpreted from the rock strata provides a way to organize Earth's history. Analysis of rock strata and fossil record provide only relative dates, not absolute scale.

DCI-MS/LS4.A: Evidence of Common Ancestry and Diversity.

The collection of fossils and their placement in chronological order is known as the fossil record. It documents the existence, diversity, extinction, and change of many life forms throughout the history of life on Earth. By reviewing anatomical similarities and differences between various organisms living today and organisms in the fossil record, we can reconstruct evolutionary history and interference of lines of evolutionary descent.

HS-ESS1-4

Students can use the anatomical structures of the assorted fossils in the Fossil Shark Teeth as evidence to communicate scientific information that common ancestry and biological evolution are supported by multiple line of empirical evidence.

HS-LS4-5

Students can use the Fossil Shark Teeth and information about the fossil record to evaluate the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in the extinction of species.

DCI-HS/LS4.C: Adaptation.

Species become extinct because they can no longer survive and reproduce in their altered environment. If members cannot adjust to change that is too fast or drastic, the opportunity for the species' evolution is lost.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

4-ESS1-1
MS-ESS1-4
MS-LS1-3
MS-LS4-1
MS-LS4-2
HS-ESS1-4
HS-LS4-5

Students can use the assorted Fossil Shark Teeth and Fossil Sorting Guide to gather information and evidence to support investigations for Geologic History. With close examination and research about the fossils, students can learn about the fossil record, Earth's History, common ancestry, diversity of life and adaptation.

With close examination and research about the fossil, students can make inferences about Earth's history, common ancestry, diversity of life and adaptation.

Any hands-on activity with fossils will create a strong foundation for Geologic History lessons at all grade levels.
