3 White Learn about Fossils

Today in 3 White we learnt about fossils and how they are formed.

A fossil is the remains of a creature who died. The body was covered in sediment and over time more layers formed. The creature decayed leaving an impression in the rock. Fossils can only be found in sedimentry rocks.

At the end of the afternoon we looked at a lady called Mary Anning. We watched the video on the link below.
