The Story of Fossils

Pre-Prep 2 have started to think about how fossils are made and why they are so important. Everyone had great fun using the sand, model dinosaurs and toy digger to explain one possible way in which fossils are made and discovered. They also enjoyed the first stage of making edible fossils!
