As part of our rocks and soils topic we have been looking at how fossils are formed. Today, we learnt that fossils are formed over millions of years. Animals, plants and even footprints can be fossilised.
After learning how fossils are formed, we made our own fossils. First, we made an impression with a creature in some clay. Then, we placed the clay into the bottom of a plastic cup. Then an adult poured plaster over our moulds and we left them to set. Finally, we peeled away the clay to reveal our amazing fossils.
