Creating fossils

This week in science we have been exploring how fossils are made by using bread and gummy bears.  The bread acted as sedimentary rock layers and the gummy bears were animals trapped inside the rocks.  We then applied pressure to the rocks for three days to find out what would happen.  The children were very excited to reveal the gummy bear imprints in the bread which enabled the children to see how a trace fossil could be created.
