Here is a song I created to help my 6th grade students study. I hope you enjoy.

When life leaves us, when they die
Fossils may form in their site
Gives us info, how they lived, oh
Some easy identified
Like our plants, animals that's why
They help us tell, how life was then

When evidence is in the floor
Fossils deep from life before
We dig them out, we dig them out
Fossil records we study
The kinds of things once living
They help us tell, how life was then

We can work out how they lived
Learn about all life ancient

And how they're forming
Fossils, fossils
Animals die-leave their bones
The sediments then turn to stone
Fossils, fossils
Skelton gone now a mold
The minerals fill-cast is formed
Found years after they're gone, gone, gone

Fossils form like a statue
Not all lucky to capture
They may rot away, after decay
Right conditions may bury
Fossilize it's preserving
Record of the past, a mold and cast

The remains of once living
And sometimes from ones extinct

And how they're forming
Fossils, fossils
Animals die-leave their bones
The sediments then turn to stone
Fossils, fossils
Skelton gone now a mold
The minerals fill-cast is formed
Found years after they're gone, gone, gone

Mold of a bone
Footprints or burrows
Insects caught in amber not moving
Petrified rock
Replaced organ parts
Carbon stays making carbonization
Footprints found maybe how feet beating
How they walked maybe two or four limbs
Did they herd? Maybe they stampeded
Found in mines, quarries, even riverbeds

Fossils, fossils
Animals die-leave their bones
The sediments then turn to stone
Fossil, fossils
Skelton gone now a mold
The minerals fill-cast is formed
Fossils, fossils
Animals die-leave their bones
The sediments then turn to stone
Fossils, fossils
Skelton gone now a mold
The minerals fill-cast is formed

Footprints found maybe how feet beating
How they walked maybe two or four limbs
Did they herd? Maybe they stampeded
Found in mines, quarries, even riverbeds

Fossils
Found years after they're gone, gone, gone
Fossils found years after they're gone, gone, gone
