During our exploration of fossils we continued to come across the word "print". We thought it might be interesting to make some prints of our own using paint and paper.

We learned that there are two different kinds of fossils. The first kind are fossilized "remains" of animals or plants like bones, shells or leaves. The second type of fossil shows the activity of an animal, like footprints and trackings. We talked about how we can make footprints by walking in the sand or by walking across a dry surface with wet feet. 

We can also make prints of the art we make. There are many different kinds of "prints". This was a great way to show children the medium in its simplest form.
