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!

Just find some human skeletons you "found" and quiz them on that.

Why do you always troll event forums for no apparent reason? You did it with Towers last year and Battery Buggy both this year and last year, now this...

I think Division A is dependent on where you live. Try to find out who organizes the tournaments in your region and ask them.

Hi, on the list, there are some fossils that are bolded. Is there a reason for this?
Thanks!

I believe that the bolded fossils mean that they weren't on the list the last time that the event was run.
