This week's Science chapter was on Fossils. Brianna loved it! We read about how fossils are formed and the different types of fossils and different types of areas they can be found. As usual I had Brianna record her vocabulary for the week. We discovered this week that she's able to copy the vocabulary better if I print the page off on to paper rather than having her copy it from the e-book on the computer screen.

Next up was making out own fossils! Brianna chose to fossilize sea shells instead of things like leaves.

Picking out the best shells

Adding the shells to the clay (which, not on purpose, ended up looking like natural sediment and such from the mixing of the colors)

Pulling the shells back out

Brianna was amazed how well all the ridges and points came out in the clay!
