Mary Anning PowerPoint KS2

Mary Anning was one of the world’s greatest fossil hunters. Despite her humble background, she was a pioneer, although she didn’t receive the credit for her achievements that she deserved.

Introduce your class to this remarkable British paleontologist with this 15 slide PowerPoint detailing her life and major discoveries including ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs and winged reptiles!

This presentation would complement a rocks and fossils unit, or support learning about women in science.

This resource is a PowerPoint. A PDF of the presentation is also included for those without access to Microsoft Office.

I also offer a Fossils as Evidence PowerPoint in my shop, suitable for KS2. Find it here
