Stanley had been collecting shells and stones for several years. One day he was walking along shore of a lake and found a beautiful stone. When he turned the stone over, noticed that there was an imprint of an animal on the bottom. His mother said it might be a fossil. What sources of information could Stanley use to find out if the stone was indeed a fossil?
