Description:

In this activity, early learners simulate fossil prints in play dough or clay. Using plastic dinosaur feet to make footprints on their “mud” (much as dinosaurs walked around their habitat) and harvest items (leaves, corn, twigs, acorns) to make impressions, learners simulate fossil prints. This resource includes open-ended discussion questions to encourage reflection.
