Welcome to Hands-On Education, where we strive to make learning fun and engaging for primary school teachers and home educators alike. In this article, we'll discuss incorporating art and design into key stage 2 fossils activities through the use of plaster of Paris to create cast fossils. Not only does this align with the national curriculum's requirement for students to "produce creative work, explore their ideas, and record their experiences," it also allows for exploration of various art forms and techniques. By taking students through the process of creating their own fossils, they can gain a deeper understanding of the world and the history of life on earth.
