Learn about Stegosaurus in this hands-on workshop.

A large, slow-moving plant-eater, Stegosaurus would have defended itself from predators like Allosaurus and Ceratosaurus with its powerful spiked tail. The Museum has acquired the most complete Stegosaurus fossil in the world, but how can Museum scientists use it to learn about this dinosaur species?

In this workshop, pupils use replica fossils to identify key features of Stegosaurus and learn about its body shape. Next they construct a 'Stego-jigsaw-rus' to learn how scientists piece together fossil finds.

Learning themes: using observations to draw conclusions, finding out how scientists use evidence, fossils, survival, extinction, adaptation
