Plaster cast Fossils in Science - Dec

Class 3 have been learning about the formation of fossils in Science. We had a go at making our own mould and cast fossils by imprinting an animal in some playdough to create a mould, the same way the skeleton of a dead animal would create a mould in the rocks over many years. Next we filled our moulds with plaster of paris, the same way that minerals and pieces of rock would fill a mould over thousands of years to form a fossil. Finally we painted them to make them look form realistic.
