BRANTFORD LAPIDARY AND MINERAL SOCIETY


BRANTFORD LAPIDARY 
& MINERAL SOCIETY



 The Central Canadian Federation of Mineralogical Societies (CCFMS) is a non-profit federation of rock, mineral and lapidary clubs for hobbyists in central Canada. It was founded in 1969 and arose out of the "Inter-Club Field Trip Committee", which had existed since 1964. The CCFMS now serves as the collective voice for the amateur clubs of central Canada. It assists its members by various means to promote the earth sciences, to protect collecting sites, to educate collectors, and to foster good will, friendship and rapport among all. Presently, there are 24 member clubs in the federation.

THE FOSSIL GUY:   My exhibit is a 1 hour show and tell of the many different ways of how things get fossilized,with examples from my own collection. There is a 5 minute slide show of different collecting areas and trade shows etc.I also bring along a binocular microscope that the kids can view amber with insects in it or a carbonized insect. My exhibit fits into the grade 4-6 curriculum and the kids are spellbound by the interesting and beautiful fossils. The kids may touch the fossils but not pick them up just in case they were to fall.                             
I have set up my fossils in the Library or the gym or even in the classroom if there is enough space. Also I have enough fossils to fill 4 - 7 foot tables, and if you could let me know if you have a projection screen that would be great if you don`t have one I have one that I can bring.
