Spring Term 2022
Clay fossil models!
We demonstrated the process of fossilisation using shells and clay!
First, we imprinted shells into clay to mimic animal bones leaving imprints in the earth.
Next, we imitated the fleshy parts of the animal rotting away by removing the shells.
Then, we imagined layers of sediment covering the specimen over thousands of years by covering the imprint with more clay.
When the two layers of clay were separated, it looked just like a 3D fossil and its imprint!
Finally, we painted the fossils with metallic paint to replicate fossils which were made of pyrite minerals!
Virtual Lesson from Charmouth Education Centre!
Kingfisher class had a virtual lesson about our topic.
We were shown the fossilised skull of a Plesiosaur. It was so huge that the eye socket was the size of an adult's head!!
