YEAR 3 Trace fossils

Year 3 have been learning all about fossils this week.

During one of our Science lessons, we learnt all about the fossilisation process. In another Science lesson, we created our own trace fossil. Trace fossils record the activity of an animal including there track ways and foot prints.

We made salt dough as a replica of the rock that a fossil is found in. Then we printed the different shapes into the rock to act as the trace.

Look at the fun that we had.
