Fossil skeletons and trace evidence allow us to picture what life and creatures from the past may have looked like. Explore what is a fossil and specifically examine what is a trace fossil. Students will be making salt dough fossils.

Thinking back to the past when dinosaurs once roamed the Earth, students will explore and learn about trace fossils. Whilst engaging their curious minds students will think about what is a fossil and what do fossils tell us about the past, and will be given a task to mold their own trace fossils using everyday kitchen ingredients including salt, flour, and water.
