Perform your own fossil dig and draw conclusions about how dinosaurs looked in this hands-on workshop.

From slow, plant-eating giants to fierce scavengers and hunters, dinosaurs dominated the land for over 160 million years. They died out around 65 million years ago, so how do scientists work out how they looked and behaved?

In this workshop pupils work in groups to perform their own fossil dig, uncovering mystery specimens from excavation boxes. Next, they observe and draw bone structures to interpret the species their fossil came from.

Learning themes: using observations to draw conclusions, finding out how scientists use evidence, fossils, dinosaurs, carnivores and herbivores.
