This weeks comprehension is all about fossils. A fossil is any preserved remains, impression, or trace of any once-living thing from a past geological age. Examples include bones, shells and exoskeletons. Fossils are primarily found in sedimentary rock, which is formed on the Earth's surface. Layers of sedimentary rock are formed by accumulating particles like sand or silt. Sometimes plants and animals become buried in this sediment, which protects them from scavengers, organic decay or weathering.
There are differentiated sheets so if you prefer the easier one chose level 1 and the harder one is level 3. The answers are there for you to check once completed.
