In this 30-minute hands-on program students will become junior palaeontologists when they explore the world of dinosaurs. They will discover how dinosaurs lived and ate through touching and examine fossils and casts of dinosaur bones.
Dinosaur Skeletons prompts students to find out more about dinosaurs through their own observations of the skeletons and fossils – just like a real palaeontologist!
The Dinosaurs Skeletons program is recommended as an introduction for classes visiting the Dinosaur Walk exhibition. Teachers are welcome to photograph their students undertaking the activities during the session to use as a reflection back at the school. This program links strongly to AusVELS Levels F to 3.
