Year 3 Rocks and Fossils Workshop at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

Year 3 visited Bristol Museum & Art Gallery on Tuesday 13th June to complete a Rocks and Fossils workshop linking to the science curriculum. Year 3 children investigated different types of rocks and related their properties and appearance to how they were formed.

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery has an amazing collection of rocks, minerals and fossils, including the Bristol diamond and all children enjoyed handling and comparing different specimens. The engaging workshop allowed children to group rocks and fossils by appearance and physical properties and develop their scientific thinking skills.
