Become Dino-Scientists for the day using our incredible galleries.
In this self-guided activity, pupils will be given white lab-coats and scientist logbooks as they take up the Dino-Scientist challenge. They will use scientific skills to work out the diet, movement and habitat of ancient fossil animals.
The handouts for this activity are available to download below, for reference purposes. The educator's guide will be posted to pre-booked school groups in advance. Each pupil will get a copy of the Dino-Scientists logbook when they arrive at schools reception.
Please note: colour versions of the downloads will be available from Autumn 2013.
All school activities must be booked in advance. To book, please call our school bookings line between 08.30-16.00, Monday to Friday during term-time, or 10.00-13.00 during the school holidays.
