Science club – making fossils!

 

Science club was was so much fun last night. We used playdoh, unident and toy dinosaurs to recreate how real fossils are made. The playdoh represented the sticky mud the dinos fell in when they died. Then we pressed down hard with our hands, to show how layers of mud, sand and rocks piled on top of the dinosaurs. Finally, we replaced the dinosaurs body with unident (which represented the fossilised remains). Messy, but lots of fun!
