Year 3’s prehistoric fossils!

Year 3 have been learning all about rocks, soils and fossils this half term.  Today after we explored what fossils are and how they were made, we made our own fossils! First, we mixed flour, salt, instant coffee and water together. Then we had to knead the dough for about 4 minutes to make sure it was ready. We then chose the insect we wanted to imprint in the dough. We gently pressed the insect into the dough and peeled it off. We then left our homemade fossils to dry for 48 hours!

Here are some examples of the fossils we made:
