'Sort buttons; students become button experts. Sort real shark teeth; students become marine biologists!'
- Ron Perkins (retired science teacher)
Our Fossil Shark Teeth collection from Morocco is a fantastic chance for your students to own a piece of history at an amazing price. Each bag is unique. You will find various types of shark teeth in sizes ranging from juvenile sharks to adults. There are well over 300 fossils
in each half-pound bag. You'll also likely find a few fossilized sting ray teeth, small vertebrae, and fragments of bone. Ideal for sorting and predicting activities. At this price, you can let all your students keep a fossil to start their own collections! Read more on our Blog - Shark Teeth

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.

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
Suggested Science Idea(s)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. Any hands-on activity with fossils will create a strong foundation for geologic history lessons at all grade levels.
