Year 3 Science

As part of their ‘Rocks and Soils’ Science topic, Year 3 had great fun in making their own ‘sedimentary rock’.  Each part of their structure represented a different part of the rock e.g. raisins – rocks, strawberry jam – dead plant life, white bread slice – sand.  The children created their own layer of ‘sedimentary rock’ before putting them all together and compressing them to show how the layers of sedimentary rock are formed over time.  A very exciting and educational lesson!
