The 3rd/4th grade class at South Toe Elementary School has been studying fossils and the changing surface of the earth. On Wednesday, March 12th, they used modeling clay and plaster to create a model of how a fossil is formed. The students learned a lot and most of all had fun during the activity. Levi Jones, a fourth grade student, stated, “I learned that trees can be fossiled when plant material is buried by sediment, and then the plant material is replaced by minerals.”
Coda Medford, a fourth grade student, stated, “The activity gave me an idea of what a real fossil would look like, and it was fun!” Overall, the activity was a success. Mrs. McKinney would like to thank all of her students for coming to class with a positive attitude and ready to learn!
