Drawing fossils was a great way to continue our exploration of fossils while making connections to some of our past conversations about lines and shapes.
We observed lines and shape in photographs of fossils, the lines of the bones of long ago animals, shells and plant life. We talked about their shapes and the similarities they have to things still on the Earth today.
This was a simple activity involving paper and black magic marker. The children were given the opportunity to draw as many fossils as they chose or to revisit the same fossil more than once.
