Hi year 1!
Over the summer holidays you have a very exciting challenge. You are going to pretend to be a paleontologist (someone who studies the history of the earth through fossils) and hunt dinosaurs!
We would like you to create a piece of information about at least one dinosaur and present it in an exciting and creative way. There will be a prize in September for the best looking, most imaginative way of presenting the information that you find.
Here are some ways you can showcase your work:
- Create a dinosaur model out of different materials along with informative labels.
- Design and build a jurassic scene with dinosaurs you have researched in.
- Design and make a ‘wow’ poster with lots of information (you could even do this on the computer!)
- Make your own non-fiction book about dinosaurs.
To start off your summer paleontology career, have a go at the virtual dinosaur dig below. It might give you some ideas about which dinosaurs you would like to research!
