Exploring Fossils

The preschool students had so much fun digging for fossils that they made their own fossils.  Each child made a dinosaur imprint in sand and poured a layer of plaster of Paris over the imprint.  After the plaster of Paris hardened, each child used a paleontologist tool (brush) to clean  the sand away from the fossil.  We also talked about and examined rocks and petrified wood.
