Our goal is to create additional study units for most animal phyla within the next several years. Please consider entering our web address into your favorite places so you may easily check the availability of future products. We would also appreciate your sharing information about our website and the quality of our products with friends and colleagues.
Several fossils included within our Exploratory Kits are sometimes difficult to obtain. In the event one or more of these fossils are not available when assembling the kits, substitutions may be made. If or when this occurs, substitutions of fossil specimens may also involve minor revisions within the text of the units.
Our Exploratory Units are a relatively new undertaking. For those who purchase and use one or more of these units, we would welcome your input as to their quality and effectiveness with students. We also welcome you to share any suggestions you may have for us to consider as we develop future units. Thank-you in advance for your input.
As a highly satisfied purchaser of Mr. Winter's fossil specimens, I'd like to share that he was kind enough to assemble the best possible specimens for us based on our limited budget. Being able to work with specimens of such high quality motivated our kids to perform at their very best. These fossils are absolutely beautiful!
To offer an outstanding experience, as well as a year-long learning opportunity for our students, we purchased a large number of reasonably priced fossils from Other Worlds. We also purchased the Mollusk, Echinoderm and Trilobite Exploratory Units which include large, excellent fossils. I recommend skipping the tiny fragments included in most other "kits" as those from Other Worlds are among the very best!

Our kids LOVED the fossils specimens we purchased from you. In fact, two kids were so inspired that they decided to leap in and cram for the Regional test. Your Exploratory Units really help a coach understand how to break down the concepts for young students. They get so much more out of it!
I ordered a number of fossil specimens from Other Worlds Educational Enterprises for use in our college labs. I was attracted by the range of fossils offered and the cost, but was worried about the quality, as I had not ordered from them before. I was pleased when the fossils arrived. They were as represented on the web site and their quality was very good, making them useful for my college students which required observable details to meet the requirements of the labs.

"First, let me express the pleasure I experienced as I opened the box and removed the packs of each fossil one by one. It was amazing! I felt a little like I was out collecting in some ideal spot that had everything imaginable. I am impressed with the overall quality of the specimens. They'll be a great addition to our little Nature Center here in Stockton. I'll also be using them for the local Science Olympiad."

“I wanted you to know how very excited I was as I unwrapped each of the fossils in the kit. These are by far the best we have purchased this year. Your fossils’ size, condition and quality far exceed those from all other sources.”
- Lois Kuhns, Kenston High School
“The fossils sold by Other Worlds are by far the best we have purchased this year! Their size, condition and quality far exceed those from all other sources.”
“Thought you’d be interested to know that our team came in number ONE at Nationals for Fossils C Division. Thank you for the gorgeous specimens which played a part in getting my students really enthused early in the season.”
