Were dinosaurs real?

In Maple class we answered the question…Were dinosaurs real?

We answered this question by looking at what we can learn from fossils and how fossils are made.

First we studied the process of how fossils are made and we made our own fossils using a similar process. We learnt that fossils are bones that have become rock.

Next we looked at how paleontologists find fossils. We went out side on a fossil hunt. We had to dig carefully in the soil and use tools to brush away the dirt carefully so we didn’t disturb the fossils. We drew what we found before taking the fossils out of the ground, cleaning up the fossils and then putting the bones together to create a dinosaur.
