K215  Here is a NEW really neat educational kit.  This is a Living Fossil experiment.  Any child (or adult) can grow their very own Living Fossil (Triops) which are mini Tadpole Shrimp that resemble fossil Trilobites.  The dry packet is placed in a clear, clean glass jar at room temperature and in about 24-48 hours, you have tiny tadpole shrimp.  After the shrimp have completed their cycle, just dry out the residue, add water and start all over again.  A great educational tool for teachers or a cool scout activity.
