Fossils - What are they?

This week you'll be finding out what fossils are and you'll find out about different types of fossils!

Task 1

Task 2

These are all images of fossils, look at them closely and see if you recognise any of the features of living things today. Make a list of adjectives (describing words) that you would use to describe fossils. 

Use the sheet below to help you make notes.


Task 3

Watch the video to find out what fossils are. This video will also tell you all about the different types of fossils.

As you watch the video draw an example of each fossil type and write a little bit about it. You might even want to research more about fossil types if you enjoy learning about them!

What are fossils and what types are there?
