Y6 Science 🧪 - Coprolite discovery in school

Y6 Science: Evolution and Inheritance.

As part of our learning this term, we have been looking to see how living things have changed over time and the importance of fossils in providing information about living things which inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. 

We have produced observational drawings of fossils as well as designed and created our own Coprolite fossils. Coprolite fossils, also known as fossilised animal poo, are 'trace' fossils; they help palaeontologists learn about the diet and habitat of animals from millions of years ago. We had lots of fun during this activity and I think you'll agree that they look very realistic!
