Bringing a fossil 'back to life'

An activity that is great fun for the end of term:-
'Running the fossilisation film backwards; bringing a fossil ‘back to life’'

Your pupils will have great fun pretending to be fossils which gradually come back to life. Ask the pupils to imagine a film being taken of an animal as it dies and sinks to the ground before being fossilised. They then ‘run the film backwards', imagining in reverse how the animal actually did sink to the ground and how it lived before that fatal moment.
Perhaps they can take some video clips of their actions; we will publish the best of these so please send them to us!
