How do we know about the lives of dinosaurs? Taught in the shadow of the dinosaur skeletons exhibition, your students will become junior palaeontologists as they explore fossils of living things and the world of dinosaurs. Through guided observations and hands on activities, students will examine fossils and casts of dinosaur skulls and teeth allowing them to make connections between the observable features of dinosaurs and how they once lived.
Science inquiry skills will be developed as students work collaboratively to observe and compare objects, pose and respond to questions and make predictions – just like a real palaeontologist!
This 30 minute hands-on program is recommended as an introduction for classes visiting the Dinosaur Walk exhibition.
