Fantastic Fossils by year 5

In year five we have been making fossils here’s how we made them.

First,we had a plastic cup and a handful or more of clay that we had to put inside the cup. Then we had to smooth the clay inside the cup so it would be smooth and we did this with our thumbs.After that we took a plastic toy of a dinosaur and pushed it into the clay. Next , we poured in plaster and waited for it to dry.

You can make these at home using these ingredients

A plastic cup


Dinosaur mould or any little toy


Wait till the next day to crack it open and take off the clay and your left with an incredible piece .
