Learn how to sieve for small fossils with the Redpath Museum's paleontology technician Chantal Montreuil. Once you have mastered the technique of sieving, closely examine your fossil under a dissecting microscope. Does it look different? Would you be able to identify it? Shark teeth, ray teeth, spines, fish scales... what will you find?
