Making Fossils - Dec 2017

We have been studying how different fossils are made and had a go at making our own mould and cast fossils. We chose an animal or shell and made a mould of them, then poured plaster of paris in to make a cast, replicating the process that happens over thousands of years.

Finally we painted our fossils to make them look more authentic.

Can you work out what we made casts of?
