    Haven't done it but love the idea! We did dinosaurs in plaster of paris on one of my placements but was a lot of effort to prepare.

    Could this not be rather confusing for the children? Will they be able to understand that the choc chips are meant to be fossils and the biscuit meant to be rock? Seems a big leap to me. And to extract fossils one needs to wear goggles to protect the eyes. Surely the children would be better off handling actual fossils and finding them in sand and water. Not wanting to be negative but I think the biscuit idea requires far too big a stretch of the imagination.
