Who was Mary Anning ?

At the start the day, Class 6 did not know who Mary Anning was. By the end of the lesson comments of , ' she was amazing', ' she is so interesting', ' she was treated unfairly by not being recognised for her amazing finds.'
We started our research for a short biography on Mary Anning, by looking at a photograph and inferring information and raising questions to investigate further. We then had the excitement of looking at some fossils -for some of us this was the first time in seeing a fossil and we felt very excited and curious-this gave us an understanding into how Mary must have felt with her fossil finds -curiosities as she called them.
