Wriggling your toes on ancient bedding planes

The new ELI today is 'What would it feel like to wriggle your toes on an ancient bedding plane as the sediment was being deposited? Clues from the present day about the origin of sedimentary rocks'.

This activity enhances understanding of the energy levels involved in the deposition of sediment, from a series of photographs, which in many cases will prompt pupils to reflect on their own experience. It can be used to reinforce learning of sedimentary environments and their products and can be accessed from about 7 years of age upwards.

Many more activities about sediments and sedimentary environments can be found on our website.
