Fossil Hunters!

Using role play to explore rocks, soils and palaeontology

After exploring both the differences and connections between rocks, soils and fossils and handling objects from millions of years ago, pupils will take on the roles of ardent palaeontologists who find themselves in a tricky situation as they investigate the contents of an ancient river bed. Armed with word banks of key vocabulary and some simple props, they’ll work in small groups to plan, prepare and perform short plays that build on the challenges faced by Fossil Hunters!

Suitable for:
3-5 year olds;
6-12 year olds;
13-16 year olds.

Exploring: soils, rocks, fossil formation

Duration: 2 hours per group of maximum 30 students.
