Explore the word of fossils with Mary Anning

In this interactive workshop, children will meet palaeontologist Mary Anning who will tell her story of discovering fossils in Lyme Regis, sharing her toughest challenges and greatest achievements. Through practical activities, object handling and demonstrations, Mary will guide the children through the excitement of finding ‘curiosities’, the puzzle of piecing the parts together and the joy of understanding what she had found.

The session will cover how fossils form in sedimentary rocks and how these fossils can give us clues about the classification of the animals and how they may have evolved. 

Online teaching resources support this session, so that the discovery can continue back in the classroom.
