Making Fossils – Part 2

The other day was preparation for making the fossils. Wednesday was the actual making day! Even though they took a long time to to listen to the instructions and explanation, they had a blast making them. Totally messy, gluggy and yet totally worth it. Here they are scooping the clay soil (dug from our own garden beds by our Year 9 Agriculture class)
