Many teachers give Christmas gifts to their students. For teachers with 20 to 30 students even the cost of small gifts can add up.

At fossilicious we have several reasonably-priced options so you can give your students a truly memorable holiday gift. For $18.00 (includes shipping) you can give every student in your class a real fossil that they will cherish for many years to come. We have many kinds to choose from. All our fossils come with an information card so your students will be in the know. See them here: Classroom Packs
