Melbourne Museum excursion packages have been designed to optimise student learning within a specific content area or theme. Each package provides a suggested program for a fun and interactive day at the museum that also meets specific curriculum outcomes.
The Dinosaurs package will give your students gallery-based and hands-on learning experiences with fossils and dinosaur skeletons. They will explore dinosaurs from around the world and Victoria, investigate fossils and develop investigation and observation skills so students can understand how dinosaurs lived. For example, students will identify and describe the similarities and differences such as between dinosaur skulls to determine what they ate.
This package includes the Dinosaurs Skeletons education program, as well as booked time in the Dinosaur Walk and 600 Million Years exhibitions.
