Populus has round-ish leaves. Acer doesn't.

I think he meant Platanus, so i'll ask that question: what's the difference between Acer and Platanus?

Platanus generally has differently shaped leaflets and (for lack of better words) a smaller "leaf angle"

Is anyone familiar with Division A (Elementary) Fossils? I have been asked to lead our elementary team for fossils. I cannot find anything online for Division A. I'm curious if Div. A will use the same list as B/C. Anyone ever do this event at the elementary school? It's called Fossil Find for A.
TIA!
